Department: Medicine, Endocrinology

Research interests: Molecular processes that underlie aging and age-associated pathologies in mammals;focusing on a family of genes, the SIRTs, which regulate stress resistance and lifespan in lower organisms such as yeast, worms, and flies;ways in which SIRT factors may contribute to cellular and organismal aging by regulating resistance to various forms of stress;how SIRT factors regulate chromatin, the molecular structure in which the DNA of mammalian genomes is packaged, and how such functions may link genome maintenance to stress resistance and aging.
