Genome replication and its role in aging
Dr. Bedalov is an Associate Member in the Clinical Research Division at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Dr. Bedalov is a bone marrow transplant specialist who treats people for blood disorders, leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma and myelodysplastic syndrome. He runs an active research laboratory that uses S. cerevisiae as a model to understand the relationships between epigenetic drift at highly repetitive sequences, genome replication failure, and aging. The lab also has a long standing interest in the mechanistic basis of pharmacological activation and inhibition of sirtuins, and the potential of such interventions to treat age-related disorders. Dr. Bedalov is a recipient of the Ellison Medical Foundation New Scholar in Aging Award.
