The Fourth Summit: Geroscience for the Next Generation

Sofiya Milman

Dr. Sofiya Milman is a physician-scientist and Associate Professor of Medicine and Genetics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.  She is the Director of Human Longevity Studies at Einstein’s Institute for Aging Research where she leads an interdisciplinary research program on resilience to aging. Dr. Milman’s research focuses on a unique population of centenarians and their families who are generally free of age-related diseases. Healthy longevity runs in most of these families, suggesting a heritable basis for this phenomenon. Dr. Milman’s team conducts translational research that aims to discover biological mechanisms that regulate endocrine and metabolic pathways, and protect against common age-related diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease.
