GSBSE Faculty Member Aric Rogers Awarded NIH Grant to Study Aging

Aric Rogers, Ph.D., GSBSE faculty member and assistant professor at MDI Biological Laboratory (MDIBL), received an R21 grant from the National Health Institute (National Institute on Aging) to study the effects of aging. The project will investigate the genetic mechanisms underlying increased cellular maintenance and longevity under dietary restriction.

In technical terms, this project will explore the role of alternative splicing and nonsense-mediated decay (AS-NMD) in controlling gene expression changes important for the benefits of dietary restriction.
