The biology of aging: How discovery proteomics is unraveling the elements of age-related diseases

In this video, Dr. Renã Robinson, Associate Professor of Chemistry at the Vanderbilt University, outlines how her team is employing a high-throughput discovery-based proteomics workflow to better understand the biology of aging and determine the molecular contributions to racial disparities in Alzheimer’s disease. Robinson also highlights the mass spectrometry technology which has supported this research and been critical to her team's global peptide analysis.
