Energetics and Human Aging

Danica

Join us for Dinner with Professor Greg Tranah, from UCSF and CPMC.

From mitochondrial origins to circadian rhythms: how DNA mutations, cellular mechanisms and activity patterns influence longevity.

About his work:

From the CPMC:

Dr. Greg Tranah, CPMCRI Scientist and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Epidemiology & Biostatistics at UCSF is among a select group of researchers in the U.S. uncovering how alterations in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) can lead to cognitive decline and dementia, and how mitochondrial genetic variation plays a much greater role than once believed in neurodegeneration and age-related brain illnesses.

From UCSF (see also a list of published papers here):

His current work involves the genetics of aging and age-related traits and he is engaged in research to discover the genes associated with longevity.
