<i>Simon Verhulst, University of Groningen</i>: Corticosterone, Telomeres and Life Histories
Telomere length is a predictor of life span in humans and other species, raising the question how variation in telomere length arises. Because telomere length declines with age, telomere length at any time point is the outcome of telomere length at birth and subsequent telomere dynamics. I will discuss recent findings on both factors, with special attention to the role of corticosterone.
