Annual Lecture:  Other
Title:  Understanding Molecular Signatures of Aging
Description:  The Trans-NIH GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG), cordially invites you to its spring seminar, featuring Dr. GR Scott Budinger. Dr. Budinger is the Chief of Pulmonary and Critical Care in the Department of Medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and is the Ernest S. Bazley Professor of Airway Diseases and a Professor of Medicine (Pulmonary and Critical Care) and of Cell and Molecular Biology. The Budinger laboratory is interested in understanding how aging biology intersects with the age-related risk of acute and chronic lung diseases. The Budinger lab is testing whether a decline in the function of the proteostasis network happens in the lung, and whether this loss of “proteostasis reserve” underlies the increased susceptibility to pneumonia, and the increased risk of lung fibrosis and emphysema observed in older individuals. Dr. Budinger’s work is important for our understanding of many diseases in pulmonary and critical care medicine, but importantly is at the forefront of geroscience research because the findings have significant impact on the aging of other organ systems in the body.

We hope you’ll be able to join us in person to hear this engaging speaker and interesting story. Dr. Budinger will also be available before and after the seminar – anyone interested in meeting with him should contact me two weeks before the seminar at (subject line - Budinger GSIG Seminar).

The seminar will be videocast at and archived in the GSIG web site.

The GSIG was created to discuss and explore the complex relationships between the biology of aging and the biology of diseases and conditions that are of interest to various institutes and centers across the NIH. If you are interested in learning more, please visit the GSIG web site

Sign Language Interpreters will be provided, upon request. Individuals with disabilities who nee
