Since I was young, I've been enthralled with the perfection of the “code of life” - how our cells and tissues are part of a beautifully orchestrated system that generates a complex and functional organism. As I grew older, I began to view science as a path to unveil the cause of numerous cellular dysfunctions, and its potential to develop treatments for various diseases.
Throughout my academic career, I always held the aspiration that one day I would translate research into therapies designed to positively impact human health. While studying stem cell research during my PhD, I was completely fascinated by the endless clinical application opportunities.
However, it wasn’t until I studied aging biology while working with OneSkin that I realized the dots connecting in a different way - that by addressing aging rather than focusing on individual diseases, we can be more effective in preventing or delaying most of the diseases we are fighting to treat.
I strive to enjoy every second of my life, and I dream of a future in which everyone will live life to its fullest, free from pain or limitations associated with aging. If I can help move the needle a little towards building this future, I will have fulfilled a significant piece of my life’s purpose.
