Suzanne Angeli, Ph.D.

Dr. Suzanne Angeli is an Assistant Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology in the Molecular and Biomedical Sciences Department and is affiliated with the Graduate School of Biomedical Science and Engineering (GSBSE) and the Institute of Medicine (IoM). She received her B.S. in Cell and Molecular biology from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. She attended graduate school at the University of California, San Francisco, where she studied the group of genetically inherited neurodegenerative diseases known as polyglutamine diseases. For her postdoctoral studies, she incorporated how aging contributes to age-related diseases using the microscopic nematode Caenorhabditis elegansas at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging in Novato, California. Her lab currently uses C. elegans to study the basic biological processes of aging – especially the role of mitochondrial stress responses on aging and disease.
