Uncovering the role of epigenomic reprogramming on monocyte development in aging

The body becomes increasingly susceptible to infection and chronic inflammatory conditions as it ages. This is attributed to the over-production and age-related reprogramming of circulating white blood cells, known as monocytes, that contribute to low-grade inflammation. In the proposed research, Dr. Deborah Winter will determine how monocyte development is altered in aging.  Using a functional genomics approach to map the key factors involved in aging, Dr. Winter’s research will provide potential targets for therapies that can alleviate the negative effects on the immune system caused by aging and enable us to remain healthy as we age.
