  • Judith Campisi received a PhD in Biochemistry from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, and postdoctoral training in cell cycle regulation and cancer at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School.  As an Assistant Professor at the Boston University Medical School, she began studying the role of cellular senescence in suppressing the development cancer.  However, she soon became convinced that senescent cells also contributed to aging. She left Boston University as an Associate Professor to accept a Senior Scientist position at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 1991.  In 2002, she established a laboratory at the…
