Through my doctorate studies, my main focus was on Cellular senescence in blind subterranean mole rat Spalax and its role in cancer resistance and longevity at the University of Haifa. Healthy aging in such mammal can be beneficial by preventing chronic inflammatory response and malignant transformation and thus prolong life span. Working on a cancer resistant mammal with a long-life span enlightened me in many aspects, one of is to have a better understanding in the importance of the aging role in many diseases. And the correlation between healthy aging and overcoming challenging environmental conditions.
