Experts How They Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Academia The Alliance for Healthy Aging presents: Evening with the Experts How They Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Academia

Why and how they got there, and where Aging is heading

An informal chat between trainees and leaders in the field

We are pleased to present the second session of The Alliance for Healthy Aging’s new series of Lunch with the Experts’ talks. Where every second Wednesday of the month, Trainees, Graduate Students, and Post-Docs can meet Faculty members for an informal discussion on science, career paths and anything exciting.

Guests will give a short talk on how they got to where they are, followed by an audience discussion and finishing with where they think the field is heading or what the ‘Next Big Thing’ is.

Join the Slack Channel (tinyurl.com/AHAtalks-join) for updates on presentations, questions and discussion during the talk, and a chance to talk with other researchers at Alliance centres.

We are pleased to present: 

Laura Niedernhofer, MD, PhD
University of Minnesota, Director, Institute of the Biology of Aging and Metabolism, Professor, Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology
and Biophysics

Dr. Niedernhofer’s expertise is in DNA damage and repair, genome instability disorders, cellular senescence and aging. Her research program is centred on studying fundamental mechanisms of aging and developing therapeutics to target them. Her research program implements a murine model of a human progeroid syndrome caused by a defect in DNA repair. She contributed to the discovery of a new class of drugs called senolytics. Laura been awarded for research in aging, cancer, and environmental health science.
