MCB Welcomes Ming Xu, UConn Health Center.

Seminar Title: “Targeting cellular senescence to alleviate age-related tissue dysfunction”

Dr. Xu's research interest involves the understanding of underlying mechanism of age and metabolism related tissue dysfunction and diseases and finding therapeutic targets for combating with these diseases. He received his bachelor degree of Biological Science from Fudan University in 2004, came to University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC) for his graduate study in 2006, and for his postdoctoral training, he worked with Dr. James Kirkland in Mayo clinic for six years. In 2018, he joined UConn's Center on Aging. His lab will mainly use novel animal models and human cell transplantation models to study the underlying mechanisms by which senescent cells induce tissue dysfunction.

Host: Dr. Campellone
