Dr. Jamie L. Barger

Jamie L. Barger, Ph.D. is Head, Project Management, Lifegen Technologies. He joined LifeGen Technologies in 2005 after completing an NIH Postdoctoral Traineeship with Dr. Richard Weindruch at the University of Wisconsin Madison where he investigated the bioactivity of adipose tissue in calorie-restricted mice and rhesus monkeys.
 
Jamie coauthored A Low Dose of Dietary Resveratrol Partially Mimics Caloric Restriction and Retards Aging Parameters in Mice, Impact of endotoxin on UCP homolog mRNA abundance, thermoregulation, and mitochondrial proton leak kinetics, Tissue-specific depression of mitochondrial proton leak and substrate oxidation in hibernating arctic ground squirrels, Energy Restriction Lowers the Expression of Genes Linked to Inflammation, the Cytoskeleton, the Extracellular Matrix, and Angiogenesis in Mouse Adipose Tissue, Consumption of endophyte-infected fescue seeds and osmoregulation in white-footed mice, and The retardation of aging by caloric restriction: its significance in the transgenic era,
 
Jamie earned his B.S. in Biology from Truman State University in 1994. He earned his Ph.D. in 2002 from the University of Alaska Fairbanks where he investigated the molecular basis of metabolic regulation in hibernating arctic ground squirrels.
