What goes wrong with aging? New insights into the links between Alzheimer’s disease  
and the aging process

Ehud Cohen  
The Institute for Medical Research Israel-Canada 
The Faculty of Medicine of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel

Invité par Valérie Mezger


Ehud Cohen completed a PhD in cell biology under the direction of Prof. Albert Taraboulos (1998-2004) at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel). Since one of the common features of neurodegenerative maladies is late onset, he joined the laboratory of Prof. Andrew Dillin at the Salk Institute for biological studies (La Jolla California,2004-2009) where he investigated the links between the biology of aging and the manifestation of neurodegenerative maladies, employing worms and mice. Prof. Ehud Cohen is currently the head of the Laboratory of aging and neurodegenerative diseases at the faculty of Medicine of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. With his group, he is studying the cellular and molecular mechanisms that govern protein quality control and the biology of aging-regulating pathways, aiming to harness the mechanisms which protect the young organism to prevent the onset of neurodegenerative maladies in late stages of life. His research has been awarded with several scientific prizes and he authored a few articles in prestigious scientific journals.
