BIOL 512L - Physiology of Aging Laboratory

Units: 1
Provides hands-on experience in techniques currently used to study physiological changes during aging. Students will design and perform experiments that demonstrate central topics of the biology of aging. Exact labs will change as the field of biogerontology develops, but may include experiments to test effects of caloric restriction, trade-offs between reproduction and longevity, declines in physiological systems with age, and cellular resistance to oxidative stress. Model organisms will typically include small rodents, insects, and nematode worms.

Prerequisite(s)/Corequisite(s): BIOL 512 .
