Hildegard Mack

Hildegard Mack obtained her Bachelor, Master and PhD degrees in Biochemistry from the Technical University Munich. During her graduate work, she studied regulation and function of the autophagy-initiating kinase ULK1 in mammalian cells with Drs. Sheila Thomas and Karl Munger at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School in Boston. In 2012, Hildegard joined the lab of Dr. Cynthia Kenyon at the University of California, San Francisco as a postdoctoral fellow to investigate regulation and function of the conserved longevity-promoting transcription factor DAF-16/FOXO in different lifespan-extending signaling pathways in the nematode C. elegans. She is continuing and expanding this research in her independent lab at the Institute of Biomedical Aging Research at the University of Innsbruck.
