    ASBMR 2014 Annual Meeting Highlight: Gerald D. Aurbach Lecture Presented by Ana Maria Cuervo, M.D., Ph.D.

    Date: July 30, 2014


    The Gerald D. Aurbach Lecture, “Selective Autophagy: Cleaning and Fueling at the Old Trash Can,” will be presented at the ASBMR 2014 Annual Meeting by Ana Maria Cuervo, M.D., Ph.D. Dr. Cuervo is considered a leader in the field of protein degradation in relation to biology of aging and has been invited to present numerous lectures, including the prestigious Robert R. Konh Memorial Lecture, the NIH Director’s Lecture, the Roy Walford Endowed Lecture, the Feodor Lynen Lecture and the Margaret Pittman Lecture. She has organized and chaired international conferences on protein degradation and on aging, belongs to the editorial board of scientific journals on this topic and is currently co-editor-in-chief of Aging Cell and associate editor of Autophagy. During this lecture, she will discuss the mechanisms through which autophagy regulates cellular energy, the key role of autophagy in the selective removal of cellular damage and how the generation of tissue-specific autophagy-incompetent mouse models has provided strong evidence for the existence of a cross-talk among different autophagic pathways and for the importance that these compensatory mechanisms have in aging and age-related disorders.
