UG Explores – your questions answered

28 September 2022

Have you ever had a burning question? In our new series, UG Explores, we ask our researchers to give a quick, simple answer to your scientific question! The videos last 1 minute, so within 60 seconds you get an answer to your question!

Science and research can often seem intimidating so with UG Explores we aim to make science accessible and approachable to everyone. For this project, we joined forces with faculties to make young people enthusiastic about the fields they could later work in themselves. Curious about the questions? We’ll release a new video every week!

UG Explores – Why do we age?

In this video, Yoran asks what makes us age. Prof. Simon Verhulst, professor of the Evolutionary Biology of Ageing, tells us that aging is not inevitable, but evolution favors reproduction over taking care of our body.

Researcher: prof. dr. Simon Verhulst, Faculty of Science and Engineering
