Martin Bens & Alessandro Ori, PhD

Martin Bens is a bioinformatician at the Leibniz Institute on Aging - FLI. During his years as a Ph.D. student in the Platzer Research Group at the FLI, he focused on comparative genomics and phylogenetic analysis of non-model organisms in aging research.

Alessandro Ori earned a master degree in medical biotechnology from the University of Bologna and a PhD in biochemistry from the University of Liverpool. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg in the laboratory of Martin Beck.
Alessandro has pioneered the integration of genomic and proteomic data to study the impact of aging on the mammalian proteome. His current research aims at the identification of determinants of longevity and molecular networks altered by aging using different model organisms including the exceptionally long-lived naked mole-rats.
