Fueling fundamental discovery in basic biology of aging research to bridge translational science and promote healthy aging.
The goal of this working group is to promote healthy aging through multidisciplinary bench science and clinical translation. We support team science in the investigation of basic mechanisms underlying diseases associated with aging, including but not limited to mitochondrial disorders, cancer, musculoskeletal degeneration, cardiovascular disorders, and neurodegenerative disease. We aim to create a collaborative community of scientists for the exchange of knowledge, tools and techniques to investigate mitochondria, aging, and metabolism by:
Our long term goal is to establish the University of Pittsburgh as the international leader in aging research by creating an outstanding research environment through the development of training grants and collaborative grants and eventual establishment of a center of excellence.
