274:Coleen T. Murphy, Ph.D: Cognitive Aging: The Science of Longevity

  1. 274:Coleen T. Murphy, Ph.D: Cognitive Aging: The Science of Longevity Gail Zelitzky and Catherine Marienau 29:33

Coleen T. Murphy, Ph.D is Director, Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics,  

James A. Elkins, Jr. Professor in the Life Sciences, Department of Molecular Biology, and LSI Genomics, Princeton University. She is also Director, Paul F. Glenn Center for Aging Research at Princeton and Director of Simons Collaboration on Plasticity and the Aging Brain. 

As a researcher, Coleen studies aging and the quantitation of “quality of life with age,” including the decline of cognitive and reproductive capacities with age. She is author of How We Age: The Science of Longevity. It is surprisingly readable and understandable. 

Coleen has had her own lab since 2005. She finds society’s obsession with nutrition and dieting limiting for her research and has, instead, questioned what else can we do to preserve our health and cognitive aging. 

She has won numerous awards for her research including being named a Pew Scholar. Coleen was awarded the New Innovator, Transformative R01, and two Pioneer awards from the NIH Director’s office.

 Effective research stems from knowing the right questions to ask. Coleen Murphy
