Skyline: Quantitative Proteomics
Drawing from the Bay Area’s deep biotechnology community, the Targeted Proteomics Course features an almost even split between industry participants and those from academic institutions, with participants from several different countries (and continents). With an impressive collection of top-flight instructors and an eager group of participants, it is an intense, collaborative week of discovery and learning on a wide range of targeted proteomic methods and statistical approaches, and even includes a metabolomics section. Feedback from past courses indicates high marks for both the information delivered, as well as the quality of the instructors of the course.
Skyline: A Success in 2018!

Summer NIA training
26th Annual Summer Training Course in Experimental Aging Research
i) overview lectures on a pivotal topic in modern aging research; ii) development workshops at which trainees present a research proposal, which will be critiqued by workshop faculty with aging expertise; iii) faculty research talks on selected topics. Faculty for the 2018 course include some of the world’s leading scientists in the aging and longevity research community. NO COURSE FEE. Travel and accommodations will be covered by funds from the National Institute on Aging, and meals will be covered by a grant from the Glenn Foundation for Medical Research.
- Cell fate decisions
- Comparative biology
- Evolutionary biology
- Genome maintenance
- Human aging
- Model invertebrate organisms
- Mouse models
- Stem cells
- Stress responses
- A Biosketch or CV including publications
- At least one letter of recommendation and
- A one page grant proposal – like abstract outlining a hypothesis and specific aims for a research project you would like to pursue. The course provides expert feedback on your research plans, similar to that of a NIA study section. You may also send up to a one-page supplemental description of your research interests if desired.
