Leiser Lab

Why fight every disease individually when you could slow or prevent the most common diseases at the same time?

Aging is the leading cause of most common diseases. Slowing aging has the potential to prevent or treat multiple diseases at once. Research in the Leiser lab is focused on the molecular mechanisms of aging, specifically how stress and metabolism affect the aging process. We utilize a translational, multi-system approach, with the ultimate goal of developing treatments to prevent age-related diseases and both improve and extend human lifespan.
