The Schedl Lab recently published an article in Development journal. The article, “Rapid, population-wide declines in stem cell number and activity during reproductive aging in C. elegans,” shows that while sporadic defects explain the sterility of some animals, population-wide changes account for the overall pattern of reproductive aging. Zuzana Kocsisova, a graduate student in the Schedl Lab, is first author on the paper. Tim Schedl, Ph.D., Professor in the Department of Genetics at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, is senior author on the paper. Congratulations, all!
