Oklahoma GeroScience Symposium 2021 
April 22, 2022

The Role of Proteostasis in Aging and Age-Related Diseases


April 22, 2022

8:30 AM - 3:30 PM CST



Hybrid Format Conference in Oklahoma City

Zoom link will be sent with Registration for those attending online


The 2022 Oklahoma Geroscience Symposium is designed to cover the proteostasis network from protein synthesis to the degradation of oligomers/aggregates and to discuss how changes in proteostasis can lead to aging and age-related diseases.
