The Biology of Aging Track is one of the tracks of the Integrated Multidisciplinary Graduate Programs at the UTHSCSA. It provides education and training for graduate students interested in basic research that holds promise for practical application towards lifespan intervention.
The Biology of Aging Track will provide graduate students with a unique curriculum designed to educate them in the basic biology of aging, thereby preparing them to thrive at a unique interface of bioscience and medicine. The program will encompass lectures and laboratory experience in molecular, cellular, and physiological mechanisms of aging.
Also covered will be theories of aging, genetic versus environmental impacts on aging rates, experimental paradigms of aging research, the biology of model organisms, demographic analysis of aging, comparative and evolutionary biology of aging, pathobiology of selected organ systems, and recent advances in genetic and environmental treatments that extend life and prevent disease.
