The goal of our research is to investigate mechanisms of longevity, resilience and neurodegenerative disease. Broadly we investigate how aging pathways can confer resilience to a brain and counter neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. Using genetic mouse models, cell culture methods, and study of human populations using cutting-edge techniques, we study whether longevity-derived mechanisms can pave a path toward development of urgently needed therapies in aging and disease.
To this end, we are unraveling mechanisms that underlie female longevity, studying sex chromosomal contributions to neurodegenerative disease, and investigating the longevity hormone klotho in the normal and diseased brain.
