About Scott Leiser
"Scott Leiser is an Assistant Professor in the Research in the Molecular & Integrative Physiology Department at the University of Michigan. The Leiser laboratory is focused on the molecular mechanisms of aging, with an emphasis on stress response and metabolism. The lab works with multiple models, including Caenorhabditis elegans, in vitro tissue culture, and mice, to better understand the conserved mechanisms of aging. Recent research in his laboratory focuses on how organisms perceive and respond to environmental stress though cell non autonomous signaling mechanisms, and how these signals affect the health and longevity of the animal."
