Einstein designated an NIH Center of Excellence for aging research
Date:8/16/2010

August 16, 2010 (BRONX, NY) Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University has been named one of the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) Nathan Shock Centers of Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging. The select group of five centers nationwide provides leadership in the pursuit of basic research into the biology of aging. Einstein's designation includes a $3.1 million, five-year grant from the NIH's National Institute on Aging.

"Einstein has become a leader in research on aging, a process relevant to every organ system and almost every disease," said Allen M. Spiegel, M.D., the Marilyn and Stanley M. Katz Dean. "This award from the National Institute on Aging is a tribute to the outstanding research conducted by Nir Barzilai, Ana Maria Cuervo, Jan Vijg and their colleagues."

The establishment of Einstein's Center is based on eight years of work by the College of Medicine's Institute for Aging Research, founded in 2002 by director Nir Barzilai, M.D., professor of medicine and of genetics and the Ingeborg and Ira Leon Rennert Professor of Aging Research. Dr. Barzilai will also be director of Einstein's Center.

"The role of age in disease is underestimated," explained Dr. Barzilai. "Aging is a major factor for the development of most adult onset diseases. If we are able to determine the biology of aging, then we can look for ways to protect against it and increase health span, or living disease-free even into advanced old age. Our research in both the Institute and our new Center is ultimately aimed at finding treatments to prevent or slow this process."

Einstein's Center will be run under the auspices of the Institute, enhancing the institute's already robust research component. Currently, there are 48 Einstein investigators,
