DRIVEN TO EXTEND HEALTHY AGING

Aging is a natural process throughout an entire life course. Focusing on health and well-being, we study the multiple facets of this process from many angles. This allows us to share insights in understanding how the nine hallmarks of aging affect us and how to manipulate the pathways involved to allow for more healthy aging. Our team and collaborators use mouse models followed by human clinical trials in research and testing pharmaceutical approaches to lessen or eliminate age-related diseases and conditions.

  • 25 CLINICAL TRIALS ON SENOLYTIC DRUGS
  • 57 iBAM Scientists
  • 6.6M IN NIA FUNDING IN 2021
  • 19 ACTIVE PROJECTS

Our goal is to recruit a cohesive, collaborative, and synergistic group of scientists to and within the University of Minnesota to lead research in fundamental mechanisms of aging.
