In Russia we have Research project on determinants of human longevity
in the Center for Longevity Research at Moscow State University. Perhaps
you have already heard about our finding that human longevity genes
are located in X chromosome. These results were presented at III European
Congress of Gerontology, Amsterdam and were discussed at scientific meetings
in the UK (Professor Shall), France (Dr.Schaechter), Belgium (Professor
Lints) and many other places. We can give a seminar in your Biocenter
on this topic too if you are interested.
Our most recent interest is centenarian studies including genealogy
of centenarians and collecting blood and DNA samples for identification
of determinants of human longevity. We are most interested in scientific
collaboration in this area.
