"Understanding the Secrets of Aging and Cancer through Nutrition Intervention"
Welcometo the Heydari Laboratory located in the Department of Nutrition & Food Science at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan.  Our lab research focuses on understanding the effect of nutrition intervention (i.e., caloric restriction, folate deficiency) on the molecular mechanisms of aging and cancer.  We hope to accomplish this by investigating DNA damage and DNA repair (specifically, base excision repair) in mammalian systems (i.e., laboratory rodents) using recombinant DNA technology. We are constantly updating our website in order to provide you with up-to-date information regarding our research and relevant information on nutrition, aging, and cancer.
