Stem Cell and Metabolism Aging
Our main discoveries in the past five years have related to our research on aging-related changes in metabolism and stem cells. This work has led us to the discovery of dietary interventions that improve stem cell and organ function when applied in old age.
Our current studies on
- cohesin-mediated inflammatory signaling,
- insulin-like growth factor (IGF) signaling, and
- tunneling-nanotube (TNT) mediated stress responses
provide innovative entry points to address these questions.
