Research Summary

Age is the single greatest risk factor for nearly every major cause of morbidity and mortality in developed nations: Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, most cancers, diabetes, kidney disease, etc. The Kaeberlein lab is interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms that drive the aging process and cause people to develop diseases and disabilities of aging. We hope to use this information to directly intervene in the aging process in order to promote healthy longevity.
