Posted: 12/5/2017 ()

Guest speakers:
Dan Eisenberg (Associate Professor, Anthropology)
Peter Rej (Postdoctoral Research Associate, Anthropology)
Rob Tennyson (PhD Student and CSDE Trainee, Anthropology)

CSDE’s next Biomarker Working Group meeting will be Tuesday, December 12, from 2:00 to 3:30pm in 114 Raitt Hall.  We are very pleased to announce that CSDE’s resident experts in telomere length analysis, Dan Eisenberg, Peter Rej and Rob Tennyson, will provide an introduction to telomere biology and a brief synopsis of the use of telomere length as a marker of stress and health, followed by a question and answer session with working group participants.

The Biomarker Working Group provides a forum for informal discussions of practical and theoretical issues associated with collecting and using biomarker data in social and behavioral science research.  This working group is open to all students, faculty, and staff and we plan to meet about once a month. Those interested in joining the working group can contact Ellie Brindle (ebrindle@uw.edu) to be added to the email distribution list.
