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.
