“Healthy Metabolism, Healthy Aging”


Metabolism is fundamental to life, generating thousands of metabolites that are structural blocks, energy resources and also signaling factors. We study the crucial role of metabolites in orchestrating cellular homeostasis, coordinating microbe-host communication and promoting longevity and healthy aging. In this seminar, I will discuss our recent progress in understanding lysosome-to-nucleus signaling pathways and their regulation of organelle crosstalk and organism longevity. I will also discuss our efforts in elucidating the mechanistic link between bacterial and host metabolism and developing new approaches to fine-tune bacterial metabolism and promote host longevity.
