November 2019: Borenstein takes part in Dog Aging Project

The Dog Aging Project is an innovative initiative that brings together a community of dogs, owners, veterinarians, researchers, and volunteers to carry out the most ambitious canine science project in the world. The project will follow 10,000 companion dogs for ten years in order to identify the biological and environmental factors that maximize health and longevity.

The scientific team includes more than 40 researchers, led by Dr. Daniel Promislow and Dr. Matt Kaeberlein at the University of Washington and Dr. Kate Creevy at Texas A&M.

 

Prof. Elhanan Borenstein, Edmond J. Safra Center Faculty fellow (Medicine & Computer Science) is specifically responsible for all microbiome analysis and for integrating the multi-omic data via systems-biology methods.  The culture of collaboration in this project fosters creative partnerships, including experts from diverse disciplines and top research institutions around the world.

 

This groundbreaking research has been outlined in news and media around the world including the New York Times, CNN, TIME, The Guardian, Reuters,  Wall Street Daily, International Business Times UK, Nature, and many more.
