The Proteostasis of Aging Core provides state-of-the-art methodology for the study of changes in cellular protein homeostasis in aging and age-related disorders. The core performs highly specialized assays for the analysis of autophagic pathways and the ubiquitin proteasome system and provides advice on experimental design, techniques, and data interpretation in that area.

For information regarding consultation fees, experimental design and methods please contact
