Our mission is to end the threat of age-related disease for this and future generations

We believe it is possible for people to enjoy their lives at 95 as much as they do at 25, and to achieve that, we’re seeking a more comprehensive understanding of the biology of aging itself.

Astera Institute and Buck Institute announce $70 million collaboration to redefine the field of research on aging

The Rejuvenome Project is a first of its kind study seeking to fully characterize aging and validate optimal longevity intervention combinations for extending lifespan

Buck Institute awarded $14 million from NIH to study cellular senescence and Alzheimer’s

Focusing on one of the major drivers of aging brings a new approach to Alzheimer’s and dementia research

Buck Institute awarded $12.7 million from NIH to join SenNet, Cellular Senescence Network

Buck scientists will identify and characterize senescent cells - recognized as a driver of age-related disease - in human ovaries, breast tissue and skeletal muscle

“What I want people to know about the Buck is the incredible commitment and excitement that permeates the walls of this institution. We are pushing the frontiers in an area that is going to impact all of humanity. I cannot tell you exactly when this will happen, but I can tell you big discoveries will come out of the Buck.”

Eric Verdin, MD, Buck Institute President and CEO

Congrats to GCRLE awardee Holly Ingraham for study @Nature which highlights the connection between estrogen and exercise, providing a clue to why inactivity is so common after menopause. @GCRLE1

MORE GOOD NEWS FROM BUCK! Great story in @MarinIJ highlighting our new partnership with @AsteraInstitute and recent NIH awards.

Recent study @Nature uncovers a fundamental role for glial cells in the nervous system of the gut in maintaining a healthy intestine. Work in mice could provide a new way to treat inflammatory disease.

The Melov Laboratory at the Buck Institute seeks a Postdoctoral Researcher to participate in innovative research aimed at understanding the role of #cellularsenescence in #Alzheimers disease. Learn more and apply:
