Welcome to the [B] iology of [A] ging [I] nvestigation lab!
We are interested in understanding: How animals age? Our main research goal is to decipher the contributing factors that regulate tissue homeostasis and aging. Currently, the lab is focusing on following areas: autophagy, mitochondrial and peroxisomal stress pathways, inter-tissue and inter-organelle communication, cardiac aging.
By elucidating the cellular and molecular mechanisms of aging, we hope that we can find ways to prevent age-associated diseases and prolong the healthspan of global aging population.
Anh Pham officially joins the lab. Welcome!
