Learning Objectives:  At the conclusion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

  1. Formulate how understanding of molecular mechanisms of aging can be helpful to combat multiple human diseases.
  2. Describe how the model organism C. elegans has been useful in understanding conserved pathways and processes that affect organismal aging.
  3. Recognize limitations in using steady-state methods to estimate activity of the cellular recycling process autophagy.
