Ethan graduated from the University of Connecticut with a degree in pathobiology in May, 2013. While at UConn, he researched improvements to a system for generating recombinant vaccinia viruses in the laboratory of Dr. Paulo Verardi. In the summer of 2013, he joined the laboratory of Dr. Judith Campisi at the Buck institute for Research on Aging as part of the 2013 SENS Research Foundation Summer Internship. There, he studied cellular senescence, the process by which damaged cells enter irreversible growth arrest.

The most amazing thing to me about the SENS conferences is their perennial appeal to the non-scientist. It’s interesting to see how many people from unrelated backgrounds come to watch highly technical talks on biochemistry, molecular biology, and regenerative medicine. This is most likely owing to the incredible advances in research being presented at the conference.

Brandon received his B.S. in biochemistry from Portland State University in June 2013. Under the mentorship of Dr. Keith Garlid, Brandon studied the role of the PI3K pathway in promoting the protective effects of cardiac glycosides. During his SRF-sponsored internship in the laboratory of Dr. Henrich Jasper at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, Brandon worked with postdoctoral fellow Dr. Jason Karpac to develop a model for studying the coordination of tissue aging across an organism.
