Trying to unravel the mechanism of aging by studying areas from genes to animals

We are engaged in research aimed at unraveling the mechanism of aging, in particular that of the brain, by applying various analytic approaches from genetic engineering using cultured cells to animal behavioral analysis. Better understanding of the aging mechanism will help develop treatments for Alzheimer’s and other as yet untreatable diseases.
