Research in the Tranah lab focuses on the genetics and epidemiology of aging and age-related diseases.
Dr. Tranah leads deep sequencing studies to identify inherited and acquired mitochondrial DNA mutations that impact age-related declines in cognitive, sensory and physical functioning.
He leads large-scale genetic studies of aging and disease in several population-based cohorts, and conducts analyses in multiple international genetics consortia.
Dr. Tranah received his Ph.D. in ecology from the University of California, Davis, and completed postdoctoral work in epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts.
