Professor Dame Linda Partridge DBE FRS

Prof Linda Partridge
Honorary Fellow
Date of fellowship 2016

Professor Dame Linda Partridge DBE FRS is a world-renowned geneticist. She is both a founding Director of the new Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing in Cologne and Director of the University College London Institute of Healthy Ageing.

Professor Partridge’s research is directed to understanding both how the rate of ageing evolves in nature and the mechanisms by which healthy lifespan can be extended in laboratory model organisms, particular the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster. Her work has focussed in particular on the role of nutrient-sensing pathways, such as the insulin/insulin-like growth factor signalling pathway, and on dietary restriction. Her current work is pharmacological treatments that ameliorate the human ageing process to produce a broad-spectrum improvement in health during ageing. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including a DBE for services to science. She was elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 1996.
