The Bai lab is interested in one of the most fascinating, yet poorly understood phenomena in biology: How animals age? By elucidating the cellular and molecular mechanisms of aging and uncovering the secret of Fountain of Youth, we hope that we can find ways to prevent age-associated diseases and prolong the healthspan of global aging population. Drosophila Genetics, Genomics, Behavior and Imaging Analysis are frequently used in our lab to tackle a variety of aging-related questions.

Currently we are focusing on three main research areas. Please check out the lab website for more details and updates (

1. Cellular & Molecular Mechanisms of Cardiac Aging.
2. Organ Communication via Systematic Signals.
3. Stress and Tissue Homeostasis.
