CSDE Research & Highlights

Dan Eisenberg Links Pregnancy To Accelerated Aging

A recent study co-authored by CSDE Affiliate Dan Eisenberg, Associate Professor of Anthropology, finds that pregnancy accelerates cellular aging. Eisenberg and study lead Calen Ryan and Christopher Kuzawa, both of Northwestern University, examined telomere length and epigenetic age in women with a range of reproductive histories. Both are cellular markers that independently predict mortality. Their findings suggest that pregnancy accelerates the aging of both markers – although cells do temporarily appear younger during pregnancy.

During that period, black men were about 3.5 times more likely to be killed by police than white men. Esposito and coauthors Frank Edwards and Hedwig Lee used crowd-sourced data on fatal police encounters to measure and explicate racial-disparities in police-involved mortality.
