Campisi studied the role of cellular senescence in suppressing cancer as an Assistant Professor at the Boston University Medical School, but soon realized that senescent cells also contribute to aging. In 1991, she joined the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory as Senior Scientist, and in 2002 established a second laboratory at the Buck Institute for Age Research, where she is Professor. At both institutions, her laboratory made pioneering discoveries, and her research continues to challenge and alter existing paradigms. Campisi has received numerous awards, including two MERIT awards from the US National Institute on Aging, awards from the Gerontological Society of America and American Federation for Aging Research, the Longevity prize from the IPSEN Foundation and the first Olav Thon Foundation prize. She serves on numerous national and international editorial and advisory boards.
