Antonei B. Csoka
Antonei B. Csoka, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anatomy at Howard University, Washington DC, where he directs the Epigenetics Laboratory. Dr. Csoka received his B.S. in Genetics from the University of Newcastle, U.K., his M.S. in Molecular Pathology from the University of Leicester, U.K., and his Ph.D. in Cell and Molecular Biology from the University of Debrecen, Hungary. He performed postdoctoral research at the University of California, San Francisco, where he cloned the human hyaluronidase genes. At Brown University, he was a member of a team that identified the causative gene for Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (Progeria), a disease with many features of “accelerated aging.” At Howard, Dr. Csoka is studying the role of cellular senescence in human aging and the role of epigenetics in pharmacology and neuroscience.
