Intramural Research

The SRF Research Center is our internal research laboratory, and the core of our intramural research efforts. In our lab, researchers undertake proof-of-concept research in rejuvenation biotechnologies, seeking to comprehensively address the disabilities and diseases of aging by repairing the damage done by the aging process at the molecular level.
 
We are currently conducting work in three separate areas: allotopic expression to prevent damage from mitochondrial mutations; degradation of lysosomal aggregates to address macular degeneration and atherosclerosis; and an exploration of the genetic mechanisms of telomerase-independent telomere elongation.
