My lab’s major interest is to understand the systemic regulatory network for the control of aging and longevity in mammals, focusing on the roles of NAD-dependent mammalian sirtuins and NAD biosynthesis pathways. We are also trying to translate our findings to humans and develop preventive/therapeutic anti-aging interventions.
