Proteostasis of Aging Core
Scientific Director: Ana Maria Cuervo, MD, PhD
The Proteostasis of Aging Core provides state-of-the-art methodology for the study of changes in cellular protein homeostasis in aging and age-related disorders.
Chronobiosis and Energetics/Metabolism of Aging Core (CEAC)
Director: Nir Barzilai, MD
The CEAC offers intellectual expertise specific to the design, implementation and interpretation of studies targeting the understanding of energetics and metabolic consequences and mechanisms specific to aging.
Genomics and Epigenomics of Aging Core (GEAC)
Director: Jan Vijg, PhD
The GEAC provide investigators with whole-genome association data from human centenarians and controls to assess their gene of interest in relationship to human aging and diseases. It provides sequence enrichment for next-generation re-sequencing of candidate gene regions, and genome-wide DNA methylation analysis using advanced high throughput technology.
Research Development Core
Director: Yousin Suh, PhD
RDC provides funding for Pilot and Feasibility studies, enhances and supports E-NSC science at Einstein, identifies new faculty who have potential for "conversion" to aging research and provides continuous mentoring through grant applications, assists junior faculty and investigators new to aging research, and provides formal education in the biology of aging.
