Jan 16, 2017 A two-fer! Congratulations to Silvan Urfer and Devin Arbuthnott, both of whom had papers published today. Silvan's is on heart function in our four-legged friends in GeroScience; Devin's is on rationale mate choice in our six-legged friends in Nature Communications.
Dec 14, 2016 The Dog Aging Project has been getting a lot of press. Seems that Kate Creevy is right: People love dogs. If you're interested, check out this link.

Oct 28-29, 2014 Matt Kaeberlein and Daniel Promislow host Healthy Aging in People and their Pets at Hotel Deca in Seattle, WA. This symposium brings together experts on aging with experts in canine health to better understand healthy aging in our pets.
April 1-3, 2014 Dr. Promislow hosts the First Annual Meeting of the Canine Longevity Consortium here at the University of Washington. The next meeting will take place Spring 2015 in Washington, DC.
July 1, 2013 The Promislow lab has moved to the Department of Pathology in the Medical Center at the University of Washington. Students can apply to the lab either through the medical school, or through the Department of Biology. For more info, click here.
May 9, 2013 Daniel and collaborator Katee Creevy discuss dog size and aging on BBC's "More or Less". You can read the story here, or download the podcast here.
April 18, 2013 Jessica Hoffman's work on the effect of sterilization on dog mortality has just appeared in PLOS ONE. This project was done in collaboration with Kate Creevy, our friend and colleague in the UGA Vet School. We find that sterilized dogs live longer, but tend to die of a very different spectrum of diseases than intact dogs, even after controlling for the effects of age.
April 6, 2013 In "Big Dogs Die Young", Bob McDonald interviews Daniel on CBC's "Quirks and Quarks" about rates of aging and breed size in dogs.
Feb 21, 2013 The size-lifespan trade-off decomposed: Why large dogs die young. For a news report on Conny's work, have a look here
Feb 2013 Daniel Promislow and Matt Kaeberlein assume leadership of the Molecular Biology of Aging Summer Course at Woods Hole. This three-week course features the newest and most exciting ideas in aging research, with a focus on molecular and systems biology approaches. All costs of attending the course are paid for by the Ellison Medical Foundation. All slots are taken for 2013.
