Biology of Aging student and Air Force Master Sgt Michael Guderyon was featured in Citizen Airman Magazine along with KSLA 12 News. Michael works as a structural maintenance mechanic with the 307th Maintenance Squadron and is also a Biology of Aging student in Dr. Senlin Li’s lab.
His research focuses on improving bone marrow transplant methods using stem cells. Specifically, he is transplanting young stem cells into older mice in an effort to rejuvenate the blood and immune systems.
“This is important because there are many labs throughout the world who are working to rejuvenate old stem cells and more young people storing their cells in stem cell banks,” he said.
