Dr. Hani Atamna is a Professor of Biochemistry and Neuroscience at California University of Science and Medicine (CalMed) Colton, USA. Dr.Atamna obtained his B.Sc. and M.Sc.in Biochemistry.His Ph.D. in Biochemistry (Biological Chemistry) was awardedin 1997 from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He was a postdoctoral fellow in the department of Molecular and Cellular Biology in theUniversity of California at Berkeley from 1997-2000. He then was independent scientistat the Children's Hospital Research Institute (CHORI) at Oakland, CA until 2008. In 2008 Dr. Atamna became afaculty of Biochemistry and Neuroscience at the Commonwealth Medical College (TCMC), rising to the rank of Associate Professorat 2012. His research is directed at understanding the mechanisms of cellular senescence and developing strategies to delay this process. He discovered the anti-senescence activity of diaminophenothiazines, their effect on complex-IV, and mitochondria. Dr. Atamna also studies the mechanism of neurodegeneration of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). He identified the heme-binding domain in Amyloid-ß, which helped explain the cytopathologies of AD (e.g., decline in complex-IV). He is interested in developing novel therapeutic and diagnostic strategies to delay AD and cell senescence with the goal to improve the quality of life with age.
