Lab information

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.

Research focus

Cellular & Molecular Mechanisms of Cardiac Aging.
Organ Communication via Systemic Signals.
Peroxisome and Inter-Organelle Communication.
