Dr. Tony Gamble, associate professor of biological sciences in Marquette University’s Klingler College of Arts and Sciences, has been awarded a $1.1 million subaward from the National Science Foundation as part of a research team, “Integration Institute: Sex, Aging, Genomics, and Evolution (IISAGE),” led by colleagues at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) to better understand aging differences between females and males.

The award, which has an expected value of $12.5 million over five years, will establish the IISAGE Biology Integration Institute and use an interdisciplinary approach to define the rules that govern how sex differences in aging arise and evolve. IISAGE engages investigators from around the country, including Marquette, UAB, Brown University, Cornell University, Michigan State University, University of Houston, University of Kansas and University of Maryland.
