Dr. Karyn L. Hamilton is a Professor and the Director of the Translational Research on Aging and Chronic Disease (TRACD) laboratory in the Department of Health and Exercise Science at Colorado State University in Fort Collins Colorado. She is also the Associate Director of the Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging at CSU. Karyn earned her PhD at the University of Florida and completed post-doctoral fellowships at Baylor College of Medicine and the University of Florida. The overall objective of the TRACD laboratory is to understand the role of adaptation to stresses and maintenance of mitochondrial protein turnover and function in the context of extending healthspan. To accomplish this objective, we use models of long life and increased healthspan including exercise, nutritional, pharmacological, genetic, and evolutionary models. Our approach is to employ in vitro systems, in vivo animal models, and human participants to help identify mechanisms and translate findings.
