Moonshot Thinking For Aging, Mental Health, And Drug Re-Purposing — Dr. Tim R. Peterson.

Washington University in St. Louis.


Dr. Tim R. Peterson PhD. is Assistant Professor, in the Department of Medicine, at Washington University in St. Louis.

Dr. Peterson went to the Massachusetts Institutes of Technology (MIT) where he received his doctorate in biology.

Dr. Peterson’s lab is interested in quality of life issues that affect all people, indirectly or directly, and two critical conditions that his lab is especially interested in are aging (specifically research on health span – the healthy period of one’s life) and mental health / mental health equality for all people.

Dr. Peterson’s lab takes both molecular and population-level approaches to identify causal factors underlying these global public health issues. In particular, his lab is uses computational approaches, such as natural language processing and machine learning for co-expression analysis, as well as “wet-lab” approaches, such as high-throughput sequencing, CRISPR screening, and metabolomics.
