Description: The Trans-NIH GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG) cordially invites you to its spring seminar, featuring Dr. Valter Longo. Dr. Longo is the Edna Jones Professor in Gerontology and Professor in Biological Science. He is also the Director of the University of Southern California Longevity Institute.

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.

The GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG) was formed to enhance opportunities for discussion of the intersection between the biology of aging and the biology of disease and conditions that are of interest across ICs. It is focused on basic biology, but with a longer view towards translation. If you are interested in learning more, please visit the GSIG web site http://sigs.nih.gov/geroscience/Pages/default.aspx
