The objective of my PhD research is to investigate the role of system xc in healthy (brain) aging with focus on (neuro)inflammaging. We study the effect of aging on system xc in both the central nervous system and the peripheral immune system, as well as the effect of a genetic loss of system xcon (neuro)inflammaging and how it affects susceptibility for typical age-related diseases.
