Molecular Metabolism


My broad scientific interests lie in understanding genetic and non-genetic mechanisms that regulate aging and aging-related diseases. In particular, I am interested to study how molecular and cellular mechanisms of external signals that promote longevity regulate epigenetic and metabolic changes; how it impacts age-related diseases, and whether these conditions (positive or negative) can be transmitted to next generations. In the Mair lab, I study how epigenetic marks reprogram transcriptional networks to promote longevity using cutting-edge techniques such as CRISPR to develop novel approaches to study the aging process.
