    strived to find connections between development and disease later in life And we worked hard to establish mathematical and statistical models describing lifespans life histories and biological processes affecting age Scientific output Publications In total more than 250 publications in scientific journals Average Impact Factor IF of 6 7 Over 13 of the publications occurred in high impact journals IF 10 LifeSpan has generated new insights on the life course processes affecting ageing and health in old age By taking the step from animal models to humans LifeSpan showed that there is indeed evidence that genes regulating development in various species primarily involved in insulin signaliing are associated with late life effects Results apply to cohorts enriched for familial longevity as well as cohorts of very old people LifeSpan has contributed to identifying pathways that are crucial for ageing e g mTOR Genome wide association studies have been performed in several cohorts inside and outside Europe generating multiple good candidate genes for longevity Partners are now collaborating on meta analyses and replication of positive findings Several studies in LifeSpan have contributed to down playing the importance of specific signalling and metabolic pathways e g sirtuins and free radicals in the ageing process The study of epigenetics in unique human cohorts and rat models has provided a convincing link between early life events and late life health This effect can be mediated by modifications to the DNA earlier in life LifeSpan has also shown that several loci in the human genome are affected by changes in the pre natal environment e g starvation and associated with ill health in old age A pioneering and successful initiative of LifeSpan was to create mathematical models to study physiological and genetic processes that are important for ageing and life trajectories These models generate new
