Ana Maria Cuervo, M.D., Ph.D. (right), is co-director of Einstein's Institute for Aging Research and a member of its Liver Research Center and its Cancer Center. She is the Robert and Renée Belfer Chair for the Study of Neurodegenerative Diseases. In 2001 she established her laboratory at Einstein, where she studies the role of protein degradation in aging and age-related disorders, with an emphasis on neurodegeneration and metabolic disorders. Dr. Cuervo’s group is interested in understanding how altered proteins can be eliminated from cells and their components recycled. Her group has linked alterations in lysosomal protein degradation (autophagy) with different neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and Huntington’s.
