Julie A. Mattison, Ph.D., Staff Scientist
Facility Head, Nonhuman Primate Core
Julie A. Mattison, Ph.D.Dr. Julie Mattison received a B.A. in Biology from the University of California, San Diego, an M.S. in Exercise Physiology from Central Washington University and completed her education at Southern Illinois University with a Ph.D. in Physiology. Dr. Mattison came to NIA in 2000 as a postdoctoral fellow with a cross appointment in the Laboratories of Neurosciences and Cardiovascular Science to manage the ongoing study of calorie restriction in nonhuman primates and begin new studies of nutrition and vascular aging. In 2004, she became a contract Facility Head of the nonhuman primate program and was appointed as a Staff Scientist/Facility Head in 2006. Julie now heads the Nonhuman Primate Core Facility.

Research Interests: The Nonhuman Primate (NHP) Core was established in October 2012 and offers research services supporting multi-disciplinary translational aging projects. Working with investigators, we develop experimental protocols that can be carried out using monkeys.

Main areas of research include a 25 year study of calorie restriction, calorie restriction mimetics, sarcopenia, and metabolic regulation
