Abstract

This proposed project is a part of one Work Package within an EU-Horizon 2020 project entitled “Ageing with C.elegans” and concerns analyses of single nucleotide polymorphisms associated with healthspan in humans. The study is designed as a nested case-control within a large prospective population-based cohort. Cases are defined by survival to old age without major age-associated diseases. As controls will be used individuals surviving to old age but with one or more chronic diseases and also individuals not surviving to old age. Analyses will be performed by our collaborator in this EU-supported project from the National Institute for Health and Welfare in Helsinki.
