Description:

The Trans-NIH GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG) cordially invites you to its fall seminar, featuring Dr. Charlotte Peterson. Dr. Charlotte Peterson is a Professor and Associate Dean of Research at the University of Kentucky, College of Health Sciences.She serves on the Board of Scientific Counselors for the National Institute on Aging and on external advisory committees for academic institutions nationally and internationally. She is Associate Editor of the Journals of Gerontology and Aging Cell.Dr. Peterson’s research focuses on elucidation of cellular and molecular mechanisms controlling skeletal muscle structure and function. She is currently funded by the NIH to study the role of adult stem cells in muscle maintenance and adaptation; the influence of obesity and inflammation on muscle function; and strategies to improve exercise outcomes in the elderly. Her work emphasizes changes that occur with age with the long term goal of preventing frailty and loss of functional independence. The GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG) was formed to enhance opportunities for discussion of the intersection between the biology of aging and the biology of disease and conditions that are of interest across ICs. It is focused on basic biology, but with a longer view towards translation.
