Mountain View, CA / Berlin, Germany
We are happy to announce Dr. Dongsheng Cai as a speaker for the 2019 Undoing Aging Conference.
Dongsheng Cai, MD, PhD, is a professor in pharmacology and also holds Young Men Division endowed chair in physiology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, USA.
Dr. Cai received many awards and honors, for example, he is a recipient of Joseph A. Pignolo Award in Aging Research from University of Pennsylvania, Vincent Cristofalo Rising-Star Award from American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR), and Outstanding Scientific Achievement Award (Lilly Award) from The Obesity Society (TOS). The research in Dongsheng Cai’s lab focuses on studying the neural and hypothalamic mechanisms of metabolic syndrome and systemic aging.
"Dongsheng’s fabulous work on the involvement of the hypothalamus in aging first came to my attention six years ago, as a result of a groundbreaking paper on the role of GnRH, and he spoke at the last Cambridge conference in 2013. His group’s research has since continued to make immense progress, including very recent advances, and I’m delighted that he has agreed to update us in Berlin." says Aubrey de Grey.
