Training Grant Programs: Genetic Approaches to Aging

Director

Peter Rabinovitch, MD, PhD

Program Description

The goal of our program is to train new independent investigators who will utilize molecular and genetic techniques to investigate the biology of aging. The objective of this research is to elucidate the basic mechanisms underlying the process of aging and age-related changes in humans and in animal models of human aging. This includes investigations of the mechanisms responsible for the gradual or programmed alterations of structure and function that characterize normal aging, as well as how these adverse changes become risk factors for, or accompany, age-related conditions and disease states.
