Vera Gorbunova

Vera Gorbunova takes a mechanistic approach to biology, but studies problems of high interest to evolutionary biologists, such as longevity and genome stability.
She pioneered the comparative biology approach to study aging, and discovered principles that underlie the evolution of tumor suppression. Currently, much of the focus of her research has been on the longest-lived mammalian species and their mechanisms of longevity and cancer resistance.
