About the Aging Institute
What controls how and why we age? This fundamental biological question is at the heart of the mission of the research taking place at the Aging Institute at Bridgeside Point. Bringing together a large group of talented investigators, we seek to understand the biological basis for human aging. Using a range of sophisticated molecular techniques, our investigators are probing the fundamental biology of aging. We believe the answers to these questions will unlock powerful new approaches for how we treat a range of age-related diseases. Complementing these basic mechanistic efforts, our investigators are also dedicated to finding novel small molecules (i.e. drugs) that combat the aging process. In addition, we also conducting innovative clinical trials that leverage the knowledge of aging biology to test new therapies in patients. Our goal is devise ways to extend healthspan-namely increasing the number of years patients can remain free from debilitating age-related conditions.
