Thomas Flatt

The Flatt group studies the evolution and mechanisms of life history and aging, using Drosophilaas a model system. A major focus is on understanding the genomic basis of evolutionary changes in life history traits and lifespan in natural and evolved laboratory populations. Another focus is on the hormonal regulation of life history trade-offs (especially the trade-off between reproduction and lifespan) and the endocrine modulation of aging.
