Salk Institute

Salk Institute for Biological Sciences

The Glenn Center for Aging Research was established in January 2009 with a $5 million gift from the Glenn Foundation for Medical Research. Led by Dr. Jan Karlseder, the Center draws from nine of Salk's leading laboratories specializing in genetic analysis, stem cell biology and metabolism research to address the overarching goal of defining a healthy lifespan, or healthspan, and answer one of the most elusive questions in biology: Is there a defined biological process of aging that is universal to all organisms?
