The Buck is bringing our expertise in #aging, #metabolism, and #immunity to the fight against #COVID19. Read about our role in an international effort led by Buck adjunct professor @KroganLab https://www.buckinstitute.org/news/focusing-on-metabolism-and-aging-the-buck-joins-the-fight-against-covid-19/

Take a break from your #COVID19 reading to read about what @UABBiology professor Dr. Steven Austad is learning about #aging from animals. We promise it covers everything from opossums in South America to lion taming! https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2020/04/06/828350701/possums-hydras-and-humming-birds-what-were-learning-about-aging-from-animals

It was so great to see each other's faces during our virtual Town Hall yesterday while we shelter-in-place.

We are continuing to add to our #covid19 page with institute updates, news, and resources to help keep yourself and loved ones healthy. https://www.buckinstitute.org/covid-19/
