Mark McCormick, Assistant Professor, University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center. The McCormick Lab studies the basic biology of aging. We use multiple model systems to look for conserved biology that will help us understand and delay aging, and the onset of age-related diseases, in humans. Mark McCormick received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of California, San Francisco, and his BS in Biology and BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin.
