Joel Buxbaum Wins Ellison Senior Scholarship in Aging

Scripps Research Institute Professor Joel Buxbaum has been selected as an Ellison Medical Foundation Senior Scholar in Aging from among a competitive field of applicants. The Ellison Medical Foundation award provides significant support to allow the development of new, creative research programs by established investigators who may not currently be conducting aging research or who may wish to develop new research programs in aging.

Throughout the four-year project, Buxbaum and his colleagues Assistant Professor Jill Waalen and Professor Nicholas Schork will work on a project titled, “Defining the Genetics of Body Temperature and its Relationship to Human Longevity.” The work was stimulated by the observations of Professors Bruno Conti and Tamas Bartfai of the Scripps Research Department of Molecular and Integrative Neurosciences who noted increased longevity in mice genetically programmed to maintain lower-than-normal body temperatures.
