Dangerous conversions: biological mechanisms driving aging-related protein toxicity

Our main focus is on cellular mechanisms that drive age-related protein toxicity in aging and age-related diseases like Alzheimer and Parkinson. I will talk about our use of C. elegans as a model to identify cellular regulators of protein toxicity and highlight some of our recent findings, including those were we start to translate our findings in worms to mouse models of disease.
