Aging multi-omics

Aging and Age-associated Disease

This research seeks to develop an analytical framework to identify predictive functional relationships between changes in different metabolic parameters during aging. The project is a collaboration with Professor Marta Lipinski, PhD, University of Maryland School of Medicine, and Professor Maureen Kane, PhD at University of Maryland School of Pharmacy. In a previous, lipidomics-focused, study completed by our collaborators, the lysosomal function in neuronal cells was found to be disrupted after traumatic brain injury, where similar phenomena have been observed in Alzheimer’s disease and age-associated disease.
