Dr. Gloria Salazar obtained a M.S. in Biochemistry and a PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology from the Catholic University in Santiago, Chile. She moved to Atlanta in 2002 as a postdoctoral fellow at Emory University, where she studied membrane trafficking events involve in synaptic vesicle biogenesis. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food and Exercise Sciences at Florida State University. Dr. Salazar research focuses on vascular aging or senescence and its impact in age-related diseases such as atherosclerosis. These studies are significant because the increase in life expectancy, in particular in developed countries, has considerably increased the population at risk of developing age-related diseases. Dr. Salazar’s research has established a novel interplay among mitochondrial function, autophagy and zinc metabolism in the regulation of vascular aging. These studies will provide a foundation for novel therapeutic interventions to promote healthier aging and prevent/delay age-related diseases including atherosclerosis.

Research Interest

Vascular aging, atherosclerosis, mitochondrial dysfunction, autophagy and zinc metabolism.
