About the Speaker

Matt Kaeberlein, PhD

Professor, UW Department of Pathology
Co-Director, UW Nathan Shock Center of Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging/ Director, Healthy Aging and Longevity Research Institute/ Director of the Dog Aging Project

Matt Kaeberlein, Ph.D., is recognized globally for his research on the basic biology of aging. He has the perspective that the molecular mechanisms of aging will lead to interventions that slow the onset and progression of age-related chronic conditions, such as cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and others. Current projects in the Kaeberlein lab have a common theme centered on identifying the genetic and environmental factors that modulate longevity and understanding how these factors act at a molecular level. Once these factors are identified, then it will be possible to develop drugs specifically targeting the gene variant of interest. If these drugs increase life span or delay the onset of age-associated disease in animal models, they will be good candidates for human clinical trials
