AgingBiology of agingLongevity genes
Dr. Barzilai discovered the first “longevity gene” in humans. His research established that the gene variant that leads to high HDL, or “good cholesterol,” is linked to healthy aging and extreme longevity. Dr. Barzilai has been profiled by major outlets, including The New York Times, PBS’ “NOVA scienceNow” and National Geographic. read more...

DiabetesType 2 diabetesDiabetes prevention
An expert in diabetes prevention, Dr. Crandall is a principal investigator in the NIH-funded Diabetes Prevention Program Outcomes Study, which showed that sustaining weight loss or taking an anti-diabetic drug can stave off type 2 diabetes in people at high risk for the disease. The American Diabetes Association recently funded Dr. Crandall to study whether the wine ingredient resveratrol can prevent diabetes in patients with prediabetes. read more...

Cancer surgeryEndocrine surgeryGene therapy
Dr. Libutti is an expert in surgical oncology and endocrine surgery and a pioneer in tumor targeted gene therapy. His laboratory studies tumors – particularly those of the pancreas, thyroid and adrenal glands – that trigger the formation of new blood vessels that allow tumors to grow and spread. A holder of five U.S. patents, he is developing novel cancer therapies by studying the complex interactions that occur within the tumor microenvironment. read more...

Cardiac surgeryMitral repair surgeryAortic valve surgery Minimally invasive heart surgeryHeart transplantation
Dr. Michler is a heart surgeon who specializes in complex aortic and mitral valve repair surgery. He is an NIH-funded investigator whose interest in repairing the injured heart has led to clinical trials in cardiac stem cell transplantation. Dr. Michler and his teams have advanced minimally invasive cardiothoracic surgery procedures and surgical robotics. This work led to FDA approval for selective cardiac robotic procedures including mitral valve repair and coronary bypass surgery. read more...

Breast cancerClinical TrialsHIV-associated cancers
Dr. Sparano is a clinical researcher who develops and evaluates new treatment approaches for breast cancer, lymphoma, and other cancers, including cancers associated with HIV infection. He also identifies genes that can be used to determine breast cancer prognosis and predict response to treatment – and that may be targeted in cancer as a treatment. He was involved in developing the Oncotype DCIS test, which provides patients with ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast a score that predicts the likelihood of recurrence after surgery, allowing the treatment program to be individualized. read more...
