Why I Chose Einstein
I want to pursue
multidisciplinary research, and Einstein has all the technology and expertise I need,
from mouse genetics to systems biology. And because I’m focusing on human genetics,
human cohorts with well-characterized phenotypes are critical. Here I have direct access
to all these human population samples through Einstein’s Longevity Genes Project,
Aging Study, and Women’s Health Initiative.
What I Love About Working Here
quality of the graduate students. Almost all have prior exposure to lab work from their
undergraduate work. They have a clear understanding of what they are doing and the
goals of their study.
What’s Most Exciting About Her Research at the Moment
codeveloped a comprehensive gene SNP discovery platform, Two-Dimensional Gene
Scanning (TDGS). Using TDGS, she and her colleagues have discovered SNP variants of
genes known to be involved in aging-related phenotypes, including exceptional longevity.
