An intermittently methionine-restricted diet reduces marrow fat accumulation and preserves more bone mass than continuous methionine restriction, according to a recent study from the Johnson Lab published in Aging Biology.
Dr. Nichenametla’s lab is hiring a Senior Technician or a Senior Post-doctoral Fellow. The candidate will work on various SAAR-related projects associated with mechanisms, nutritional aspects, and prevention of diseases, including metabolic diseases, cancers, and proteostatic disorders. Responsibilities include generating data extensively from rodent models and occasionally from in vitro studies and clinical study specimens. Routine daily activities include performing experiments and data analysis, drafting publication-quality manuscripts, assisting in submitting grant proposals, and presenting work at scientific meetings.

Sailendra Nichenametla Recipient of Inaugural Hevolution/AFAR New Investigator Award in Aging Biology and Geroscience
Senior Scientist Sailendra Nichenametla, Ph.D., has been named as a recipient of the inaugural Hevolution/AFAR New Investigator Awards in Aging Biology and Geroscience Research, presented by the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR) and Hevolution Foundation. The US$375,000 award supports research projects in basic biology of aging or geroscience—a research paradigm based on addressing the biology of aging and age-related disease to promote healthy aging. Dr. Nichenametla will utilize the funds to investigate the role of serinogenesis in regulating lipid metabolism.
