The Trans-NIH GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG) holds its spring seminar with Dr. Valter Longo, the Edna Jones Professor in Gerontology and Professor in Biological Science and the director of the University of Southern California Longevity Institute.
According to the GSIG, Dr. Longo is "interested in identifying the molecular pathways conserved from simple organisms to humans that can be modulated to protect against multiple stresses and to treat or prevent diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s and other diseases of aging. The focus is on the signal transduction pathways that regulate selective cell resistance, with a particular emphasis on dietary interventions."
