Grantee in the News: Three-Time Grantee Dena Dubal Profiled in Neurology Today View MoreBACK

On September 17, 2015, Neurology Today profiled the professional development and current research of three-time AFAR grantee, Dena Dubal, MD, PhD.

The article surveys Dr. Dubal’s research on how the Klotho enzyme effects brain biology as well as her investigation into the biological longevity of the X-chromosome.  Now four years into running her own lab, Dr. Dubal states, “I love leading the science, we don't know where the science will take us. But we ask big questions with the goal of high-impact biomedical discoveries. I really hope that our findings lead to ways in which we can live a longer and better life.”

A current 2015 AFAR Research Grant for Junior Faculty, Dena Dubal, MD, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at the University of South California.
