The McCormick Lab studies the basic biology of aging.  We use lab organisms to look for conserved biology that will help us understand and delay aging, and the onset of age-related diseases, in humans.


Potential Students and Lab Members

The McCormick Lab is in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, Albuquerque, NM, USA.

Prospective PhD students should apply to the UNM HSC Biological Sciences Graduate Program at , and also contact us at .

We are also interested in undergraduate researchers in the McCormick Lab, and have undergrad co-authors on many of our previous peer-reviewed publications.  If you are a UNM undergrad or an undergrad summer or travel fellowship recipient who is interested in our research, please contact us at .

Potential Partners, Collaborators, and Donors

The field of basic aging research has exploded recently.  In addition to a growing roster of excellent academic labs, there have been several very well funded startups focused on the basic biology of aging in the last few years. 

If our work suggests possible academic collaborations, opportunities for sponsored research or commercialization, or targets for philanthropy or directed research, let's discuss the possibilities.  Contact us at .
