Research Focus

The Lamming laboratory is primarily focused on understanding the physiological role played by the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR), a protein kinase that, through a diverse set of substrates, regulates cellular processes including growth, metabolism, and aging. Recent work hasshown that rapamycin, an inhibitor of mTOR signaling, can promote health and longevity in model organisms including mammals. As detailed by Dr. Lamming in a recent review article – Rapalogs and mTOR inhibitors as anti-aging therapeutics – understanding and manipulating the mTOR signaling pathway may provide insight into the treatment of age-related diseases, including diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and cancer.
