Julian Moran BSc, MSc CandidateClinical Research Coordinator, Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Hypertension, Brigham and Women´s Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts
Julian Moran is a clinical research coordinator focusing on novel therapeutics for type 2 diabetes at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston Massachusetts. He received his BSc in Biochemistry from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, where he is also a Master of Science in Biochemistry candidate. During his time at McGill, Julian studied the regulation of the cellular senescence secretome, which has been found to be an important contributor to age-related diseases such as diabetes and cancer as well as a cause of chronic inflammation which accelerates aging. This collection of secreted factors is commonly referred to as the senescence associated secretory phenotype (SASP). Julian also worked on understanding the mechanisms by which senescent cells respond to stress. Julian’s clinical interests are in understanding and preventing chronic disease, with focused interest and concentration in type 2 diabetes and endocrinology. He is passionate about bridging the communication science gap between physicians and physician-scientists and patients.
