April 14: "BIOLOGIES" OF AGING? Series continues with Liza Pon

This spring we're offering a series of events all devoted to the biology of aging. Full series details are here.

The next event in the series is a brown bag seminar with Liza Pon, PhD, Professor of Pathology and Cell Biology.  Dr. Pon's talk entitled "Role for Mitochondrial Quality Control during Yeast Cell Division in Aging" takes place on Thursday, April 14, 2016, at 12 p.m.  An intuitive concept in human experience is that babies are born young, largely independent of the age of their parents.  This phenomena, mother-daughter age asymmetry, occurs in single cell organisms like budding yeast and is a consequence of the asymmetric inheritance of aging determinants during cell division. It seems mitochondria are asymmetrically inherited aging determinants and identified mechanisms underlying that process.

Morningside Location: Northwest Corner Building Room 703NWC, 550 West 120th Street and Broadway, 7th Floor (RSVP to Caitlin Hawke: cmh2197@columbia.edu). Access the seminar at campus level on the 4th Floor of the Northwest Corner Building since you will need to be "swiped" in.
