Connecting research to society

Would you prefer living like a jackrabbit or like a turtle?

18 July 2014 Author: Molepi - Molecular Epidemiology

One of Joris Deelen's proposition has been published in the Leiden University Newsletter for alumni. The proposition originated from his thesis ‘Genetic and biomarker studies of human longevity’, which Joris defended successfully with cum laude.


The proposition which is published and about one can discuss in public is ‘Er zijn meerdere redenen om te stellen dat je om lang te leven het pad des levens beter als schildpad dan als haas kunt bewandelen.’ (There are several reasons to presume that to live long one should  walk the trail of life like a turtle rather than as a jackrabbit)

CU there and discuss with others about this proposition on this website!
