Carsten Merkwirth, Ph.D.


I am an experienced molecular and cell biologist with a strong background in mitochondrial biology and a deep knowledge of genetics and epigenetics. During the course of my studies, I have built an extensive track record on various aspects of the biology of aging and disease. My current research at the University of California, Berkeley focuses on the question of how mitochondrial stress impacts on the lifespan of an organism using a multidisciplinary approach. My overall goal is to understand general principles of stress signaling during the aging process and to identify novel pathways that may pave the way for the treatment of aging-related diseases and promote healthy lifespan.
