Basic Biology of Aging at the University of Washington

Proteomics and Aging Workshop

This workshop will feature methods and applications of proteomic technologies that are especially targeted to studies of the biology of aging in vertebrate and invertebrate models. This will include:

  • Detection of oxidative modifications of proteins in aging
  • Proteome half-life and turnover estimates
  • Mitochondrial protein expression in aging
  • Differences in proteomes of  long vs. short lived strains

Organized By:

Peter Rabinovitch
University of Washington
Michael MacCoss
