Michael Bonkowski, Ph.D.

Post-doctoral Research Fellow

Michael BonkowskiResearch Interest: Formally I am trained as a pharmacologist, physiologist, and animal scientist. My research goal is to advance our understanding of the links between metabolism, reproduction, aging and age-associated diseases.┬áIn David Sinclair’s lab, my research efforts are focused on the role of nutrient sensors’ regulation of endocrine signaling and aging in the mouse. I am also working on direct and indirect ways to drive activity of these nutrient sensors using dietary manipulations, small molecules or chemical treatments. Although I am constantly learning new techniques and skills, some of my areas of expertise include animal physiology, genetics, glucose and insulin homeostasis, metabolism, assay development, protein biochemistry and transmission electron microscopy imaging.
