Aging and Caloric Restriction

Rozalyn Anderson, PhD, leads an internationally renowned laboratory-based research program that investigates the biology of aging and the basis for increased disease vulnerability as a function of age. She and her collaborators have published several seminal research papers and are at the forefront of translational caloric restriction research.

Molecular and Cellular Biology of Aging

Dr. Anderson's research team focuses on the mechanisms of delayed aging by caloric restriction, including its ability to off-set age-associated illnesses. This work involves cell culture, mouse, and nonhuman primate models, and encompasses molecular and cellular approaches to understand the aging of post-mitotic tissues, including adipose, liver, skeletal muscle, and the brain.

Dr. Anderson's research has been supported by the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and philanthropic foundations.
