Symposium on age-related disease coming March 19-20


The University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Redox Biology Center will host a March 19-20 symposium that covers the latest research on interactions among age, cellular dysfunction and disease.

The symposium, Age-Associated Mechanisms of Neurodegenerative Disorders, will take place in the Red Cloud Room of the Willa Cather Dining Complex on City Campus. Registration is required and ends March 9. Students, postdoctoral researchers, faculty and other interested parties can register here.

Distinguished speakers will present on mitochondrial processes in neurological disorders, cysteine-based mechanisms of cellular decline, degenerative diseases of the eye, and proteostatic stress in aging, along with emerging therapies for such age-related diseases. Those speakers are engaged in research at the National Institutes of Health, Harvard Medical School, Stanford Medical School, University of Nebraska Medical Center, University of California, Berkeley and University of Michigan, among other institutions.

The two-day event will also feature a poster session and invited short talks from students, postdocs and early-career researchers selected from submitted abstracts.
