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

er Center leader will be Jan Vijg, Ph.D., professor and chair of genetics and the Lola and Saul Kramer Chair in Molecular Genetics. He has established state-of-the-art genetic cores crucial for the Institute and will lead the Genomics and Epigenomics of Aging Core, as well as the Research Development Core, which will provide seed funding for new investigators and the expansion of ongoing research.

"A deeper understanding of the genomic and epigenomic processes underlying aging will help us to increase health span," said Dr. Vijg. "With support from Einstein leadership and cutting-edge technologies at our disposal, investigators both at Einstein and at partner institutions can take advantage of the latest equipment and analysis to advance work in the field."

"Albert Einstein College of Medicine is a welcomed addition to the NIA's Nathan Shock Centers of Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging," said Felipe Sierra, Ph.D., director of NIA's Division of Aging Biology. "Nathan Shock was dedicated to characterizing normal changes versus disease-related changes in aging. Einstein's three research cores will carry on Shock's mission and add to our understanding of the cellular, genetic, and physiological factors that influence health and longevity."

Dr. Barzilai will run the Healthy Aging Physiology Core. Other faculty members in the Center include Yousin Suh, Ph.D., associate professor of medicine and of genetics, who will run the seminar series for the center. Radhika Muzumdar, M.D., M.B.B.S., associate professor of pediatrics and medicine, will organize the center's annual retreat, which will be co-chaired by the American Federation for Aging Research.
