“Investigating the relationship between diet and biological age with a primate epigenetic clock”

Elisabeth’s research seeks to understand how environmental factors interact with the epigenome to “get under the skin” and drive inter-individual differences in health and longevity. Her project, “Investigating the relationship between diet and biological age with a primate epigenetic clock”,  uses genome-wide methylation data from rhesus macaques to build a statistical age predictor model, or ‘epigenetic clock’, that will be used to test whether modifications to diet can slow or accelerate the pace of biological aging.

Elisabeth Goldman was awarded the National Science Foundation Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant to fund her dissertation research.
Congratulations Elisabeth!
