We are thrilled to announce the launch of a joint PhD program between SENS Research Foundation and the University of Toledo Biological Sciences Department. This program offers a unique opportunity for aspiring researchers to pursue their doctoral degree in the cutting-edge field of anti-aging research, with a damage-repair approach.
Students enrolled in this program will have the chance to conduct 5 years of research in Mountain View at the SENS Research Foundation Research Center and will receive their PhD degree from the esteemed University of Toledo’s Biological Sciences Department.
Comprehensive 5-Year Commitment:
Students will benefit from a comprehensive, funded, commitment with a diverse range of coursework, expertly taught by the University of Toledo, along with an immersive research program. Our students will be at the forefront of translational aging biology, exploring innovative pathways in the fight against age-related disease.
Innovative Research Focus:
The program centers around our damage-repair approach to aging. The scientific inquiry will be mentored by our distinguished scientists, with additional mentoring by SRF’s Director of Academic Affairs, and UT Alumna, Dr. Lilli Fishman.
Students will contribute directly to our projects to combat the effects of aging and make a significant impact on human health, and will expand the field with new creative solutions to ending aging.
Similarly, as these students grow into our future leaders, the field will benefit from a new generation growing whilst knowing that aging is a disease that can and must be cured.
Bridging Academia and Industry:
One of the most pivotal decisions graduate students face, is the decision to pursue a future in academia or industry, but no longer do students need to choose. Our program offers a unique integration of academic rigor and industrial research with translational potential, providing students with a truly encompassing experience.
Complementary Neuroscience Bachelor’s Degree:
As part of our collaboration with the University of Toledo, we are proud to align with their recent launch of a neuroscience bachelor’s degree. This synergy will complement our PhD program seamlessly, opening new avenues for a deep and meaningful, comprehensive education.
Altogether, we are thrilled to partner with the University of Toledo and we are looking forward to all we will accomplish as a team.
