Dr. Malene Hansen presents: Cellular Recycling: Role of Autophagy in Aging and Disease
Date: April 2, 2019
Speaker(s): Malene Hansen, PhD, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute
Location: UF CTRB, 2004 Mowry Rd, room 2161, Gainesville, FL, 32610
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this presentation, participants should be able to:
- Formulate how understanding of molecular mechanisms of aging can be helpful to combat multiple human diseases.
- Describe how the model organism C. elegans has been useful in understanding conserved pathways and processes that affect organismal aging.
- Recognize limitations in using steady-state methods to estimate activity of the cellular recycling process autophagy.
