My main research interest is the aging-related frailty syndrome and epigenetics and genetics of aging. I’m also conducting research into aging biomarkers, such as the epigenetic clock, cell-free DNA and inflammatory markers, and interested in studying how they operate at different stages of human aging.
• Examining the longitudinal relationship between DNA methylation and development of the frailty syndrome
• Analyzing the genetic determinants and heritability of frailty
• Assessing the predictive role of frailty on health span, mortality and morbidity
