Join Caroline Williams, PhD and Eric Riddell, PhD as they discuss their research involving climate change and the ecophysiological effects of changing global temperatures on organismal biology and survival.
Dr. Matt Kaeberlein, a Professor at the University of Washington School of Medicine, answers questions from a recent webinar that focused on translational geroscience, the drug rapamycin to target biological aging, and the Dog Aging Project.
In this webinar, Dr. Joy Wu will review the pathophysiology of bone loss with aging, in particular the imbalance between bone formation by osteoblasts and bone resorption by osteoclasts. She will discuss stem cell sources of osteoblasts, anabolic signaling pathways, and targeting inflammation and senescence.
Dr. Charlotte Peterson and Dr. Jack Guralnik will discuss the challenges of sarcopenia. They will define the disease and provide an in depth overview of the underlying mechanisms of pathology. They will then share some potential therapeutic interventions and disease outcomes for patients.
During this webinar, Dr. Matt Kaeberlein provides an overview of translational geroscience, which he believes will become the paradigm for the practice of medicine in the 21st century. He also discusses his recent work with one such intervention, the drug rapamycin, and its potential to enhance healthspan in companion dogs and people.
Join Dr. John Waters as he discusses how to help students organize their understanding of biology around larger themes that are common across the life sciences. This is the fourth webinar in this 4-part series on how science education has evolved in the face of new challenges.
