The ‘CollAge’ exhibition will run from the 1 – 23 February and there will be a special launch event on Friday 31 January from 5.30pm to 7pm at Hockley Arts Club in Nottingham.
CollAge was created by Dr Lisa Chakrabarti, Associate Professor in Mitochondrial Biology in the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science at the University of Nottingham, working with artist Keith Bloody Mary, to create new collage works around the theme of exercise and healthy ageing.
As well as a CMAR principal investigator, Dr Chakrabarti also leads a research group at the University of Nottingham that is using fruit flies to examine the changes in cellular energy as the body ages, their findings could have future benefits for humans.
She says: “Exercise is a key intervention that we are studying, and we wanted to engage with the public on our research in a new and effective way”
