Summer Interns Present Posters

The Academic Initiative's interns presented posters detailing their summer projects yesterday at the SENS Foundation Research Center. Of the four Buck interns, three have done work involving senescent cells and the senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP), while the fourth has been making comprehensive improvements to his lab's mouse database. Meanwhile, two of the three Research Center interns have worked on the lab's alternative lengthening of telomeres (ALT) project and on an additional project comparing young and old microglia. The final Research Center intern has focused on our MitoSENS project, investigating the possibility of expressing a mitochondrially-encoded protein allotopically.

We're all proud of the work our interns are doing, and are looking forward to seeing the final results of their projects as they continue their work here.
