Focus on Health & Wellbeing | Research in Mechanisms of Aging
Our department supports the broader mission of the Duluth campus and the Medical School with a focus on neuroscience, multidisciplinary research and health issues relevant to rural and Native American communities.
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.
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.
