Institute for Aging Research


The Einstein Institute for Aging Research's multidisciplinary scientific investigations into aging unite faculty with diverse scientific backgrounds and technological expertise to focus on three areas:

  1. Macromolecules, intracellular organelles, cells, and tissues
  2. Molecular physiology, nutrients, & energetics in whole-animal models
  3. Genetics and genomics of aging in single cell animal models and aging humans
