New Parkinson's research led by Ana Maria Cuervo, M.D., Ph.D., was highlighted by Francis Collins, M.D., Ph.D., in his NIH Director's Blog. Dr. Cuervo’s recent study, published in Nature Neuroscience, found that a clog in the cell's protein disposal system may be a cause of the disease. Dr. Cuervo is professor of developmental and molecular biology, of anatomy and structural biology, and of medicine and the Robert and Renée Belfer Chair for the Study of Neurodegenerative Diseases at Einstein.

Seattle NPR station KUOW interviews Nir Barzilai, M.D., and Ana Maria Cuervo, M.D., Ph.D., about the biology of aging and the genetics of longevity. Dr. Cuervo discussed autophagy, the process of cell regulation, and the role it plays in keeping organs young, potentially leading to longer life spans. Dr. Barzilai discussed his genetic research with centenarians and the importance of discovering the key to healthy aging. Dr. Cuervo is professor of developmental and molecular biology. Dr. Barzilai is the Ingeborg and Ira Leon Rennert Chair of Aging Research and director of the Institute for Aging Research. (Friday, April 08, 2011)

 

The New York Times interviews Ana Maria Cuervo, M.D., Ph.D., on the self-destructive behaviors of cells and how they may hold the key to longevity. Research suggests that autophagy, the process of cell regulation, could hold the key to preventing disease and lead to longer life spans. Dr. Cuervo is professor of developmental and molecular biology. (Tuesday, October 06, 2009)

 

About.com highlights a $10 million NIH grant Einstein received to study how organs age. A consortium of four researchers led by Ana Maria Cuervo, M.D., Ph.D., will examine the molecular processes that contribute to aging. The other members of the Einstein consortium are Laura Santambrogio, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of pathology; Fernando Macian-Juan, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of pathology; and Mark J. Czaja, M.D., professor of medicine. (Monday, March 02, 2009) read more...
