Cellular and Molecular Brain Aging Research Laboratory

The crossroad between aging and neurodegenerative diseases

Welcome to the Tseng Lab!

We are a young and vibrant research group based at the School of Life Science and ASU-Banner Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center, Arizona State University in the Valley of the Sun. By employing molecular, cellular, and biochemical approaches, we study how normal aging and environmental factors lead to neurodegenerative diseases. 

[We are currently recruiting at multiple levels, please go to Team for more details]

We are hiring an Edson Postdoctoral Fellow in the Tseng Lab! 


We invite applications for an Edson Foundation Postdoctoral Research Scholar in the ASU Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center (NDRC) at Arizona State University. The NDRC is a center in the world renown Biodesign Institute and the fellowship would be in the laboratory of Dr. Henry Tseng. Under the direction of founding director Dr. Jeffrey Kordower, the goal of the Edson Foundation and NDRC is to fund research and scholars that will aid in new discoveries and solutions to improve the quality of life for people affected by neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s (AD) and Parkinson’s disease (PD).
