UA Lab Seeks 'Holy Grail of Gerontology'

What if you could experience full health until the very end of your life? UA researchers, led by Dr. Janko Nikolich-Zugich, think long-lasting immunity from disease might be possible — if the thymus and the T-cells it produces to fight infection can be brought back to work efficiently.

In the Age of Social Media, He's a New Kind of Scientist

What does it mean to be a scientist? Far more than doing research in a lab, says Michael Johnson, whose unconventional passage into the field began with a bowling championship and a music degree.


Romanoski Lab discovers DNA variations that may underlie susceptibility to coronary artery disease.

In a recent study led by UA Assistant Professor Casey Romanoski, PhD, the research team used genome-wide epigenetics to identify major drivers of human artery endothelial cell responses to inflammatory environments. They utilized endothelial genome sequences called enhancers to pinpoint DNA variation in humans that may underpin differential susceptibility to coronary artery disease. Their findings, published June 6th in eLIFE (https://elifesciences.org/articles/22536), improve our understanding of vascular biology and moves us one step closer to understanding the molecular mechanisms of disease.


Congratulations to Dr. Keith Maggert

Congratulations to Dr. Keith Maggert who has received the prestigious NIH Director’s Transformative Research Award, a five-year $1.7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to fund his project “Induced transgenerational inheritance without epigenetics”.
