Eric Baeuerle is a fourth year graduate student studying the biology of aging under the mentorship of Dr. Nicolas Musi, MD. His dissertation topic is evaluating links between the gut microbiome and insulin sensitivity in humans, as well as examining methods of modulating the gut microbiome to improve insulin resistance. In addition, he has contributed to other gerontological research including evaluating the safety and efficacy of senolytic therapies in both animal and human studies. Eric intends to pursue an internal medicine residency once he completes his MD/PhD, with plans to continue onto geriatrics fellowship and beyond.
