Yotam Raz started in June 2015 his PhD studies, as part of the MD/PhD-track, at the department of Molecular Epidemiology of the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC).
Hij completed his medical studies (LUMC) in 2015 cum laude. During his studies he was involved in several scientific projects at the LUMC’s departments of Experimental Hematology, Gerontology, Orthopedic Surgery and Human Genetics. His scientific internship (“Improved autophagy in familial longevity”) took place in the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (New York City) and his final clinical internship at the department of Internal Medicine of the Bronovo Hospital (The Hague). Furthermore, during his studies he was a member of the Young Excellence Class of the Leyden Academy on Vitality and Ageing.
His PhD research will focus on the molecular and tissue changes in skeletal muscles in an intervention study of improved metabolic (Growing Old Together Study (GOTO)).
