Aging poses serious health and economic challenges as the global life expectancy continues to increase. It is becoming increasingly important to identify the mechanisms underlying the aging process and to discover ways to manipulate them to improve our long-term health. Our lab has previously identified flavin-containing monoxygenase-2 (fmo-2) as an important regulator of longevity in C. elegans. My goal is to determine the mechanisms by which FMO-2 regulates longevity.
