The Einstein Aging Research Training Grant (T32) sponsors recruiting and training in aging research at Einstein.
Training is focused on four primary areas:
- Metabolism/Metabolic Syndrome of Aging, Nir Barzilai, MD
- Cognitive Aging and Frailty/Cognitive Function in Aging, Richard Lipton, MD
- Genetics of Aging/Role of Genes in Exceptional Longevity, Jan Vijg, PhD
- Cellular Aging/Autophagy – Immunosenescence, Ana Maria Cuervo, MD, PhD
Seven predoctoral, postdoctoral, and MD participants are currently trained through the grant. Participants gain state-of-the-art research training, enabling them to embark on careers involving research in aging and aging-related diseases.
