Dr. Trott has recently published a manuscript describing changes in arterial age related cytokine / chemokine concentrations and also exploring the alterations by known health-span extending interventions (rapamycin and caloric restriction). Congrats Dan! Trott DW, Lesniewski LA, Donato AJ. Selected Life-extending Interventions Reduce Arterial CXCL10 and Macrophage Colony-stimulating Factor in Aged Mouse Arteries. Cytokine 96:102-106, […]

We have just published a extremely novel and exciting manuscript titled “Age-Associated ALU Element Instability in White Blood Cells Is Linked to Lower Survival in Elderly Adults: A Preliminary Cohort Study” in PLOS one. This study suggests that ALU elements (short interspersed nuclear elements) in WBCs can predict mortality in a small cohort of elderly […]
Dr. Dan Trott has recently published a manuscript titled “Age-related arterial immune cell infiltration in mice is attenuated by caloric restriction or voluntary exercise” which explores the role of immune cells on arterial aging. Congrats to all involved!
A full press release from Recursion detailing our collaboration and recent R44 award. http://www.recursionpharma.com/press-release—-september-13-2016.html
The TVP lab has secured two R01s (one for Dr. Lesniewski and one for Dr. Donato) and one R44 fast track SBIR with our collaborators at Recursion Pharmaceuticals. The direct costs related to these projects are over 2.5 million and will fund the lab for the next 5 years! Great job everyone involved!
Congratulation to both the University of Utah TVP and University of Colorado IPA laboratories in the publication of a outstanding new paper in Aging Cell titled “Dietary rapamycin supplementation reverses age-related vascular dysfunction and oxidative stress, while modulating nutrient sensing, cell cycle and senescence pathways”. This manuscript was the effort of many people and years of […]
Congratulation to Dr. Hazra and Co-authors on her Brief Communication being accepted to Experimental Gerontology titled “Experimental reduction of miR-92a mimics arterial aging”
Congrats to Dr. Dan Machin for his recent American Physiological Society Research Award in the Exercise and Enviromental Physiology section! This gives Dr. Machin research awards two years in a row from the American Physiological Society. Great Job Dan!
We are excited to announce that our clinical faculty Dr. Tracy Frech was just awarded a K23 (clinical career development award) from National Institutes of Health (NIAMS) related to a novel vascular treatment of Scleroderma. This award will provide 5 years of protected time for her to develop the research skills necessary to become an […]
Dr. Ashley Walker recently had a paper accepted to The Journal of Experimental Gerontology titled, “Age-related arterial telomere uncapping and senescence is greater in women compared with men”. This article looks at the role of sex differences in arterial telomere length, uncapping and senescence. We anticipate it will have a large impact on the field […]
