Dr. Vadim Fraifeld

Vadim Fraifeld, Ph.D., M.D. is Senior Researcher, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Center for Multidisciplinary Research in Aging, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beer-Sheva, Israel.
Vadim’s research interests are biology of aging and longevity and thermoregulation. His research projects are genomic and proteomic analyses of exeptional longevity, analysis of protein profile in aging muscle using MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry: implications in sarcopenia, mechanisms of anti-tumor activity of polyphenolic compounds, and alternative pathways of arachidonate metabolism, fever, and aging.
He coauthored Evidence supporting involvement of leukotrienes in LPS-induced hypothermia in mice, p66ShcA and aging: modulation by longevity-promoting agent aurintricarboxylic acid, Superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase activities in the liver of young and old mice: linear regression and correlation, Dietary restriction modifies fever response in aging rats, Glutathione S-transferase hGSTM3 and ageing-associated neurodegeneration: relationship to Alzheimer’s disease, Mitochondrial Genome Anatomy and Species-Specific Lifespan, and From Disease-Oriented to Aging/Longevity-Oriented Studies.
Vadim earned his M.D. at the Lvov Medical Institute, Lvov, Ukraine in 1974 and his Ph.D. at the Institute of Gerontology, Kiev, Ukraine, in 1989. Watch his SENS 3 presentation Do mitochondrial DNA and metabolic rate complement each other in determination of the mammalian maximal life span?
