dc.description.abstractI tested the hypothesis that lowbush cranberries affect healthy aging in a dose dependent manner. This was done by observing the effect of cranberry extract on the lifespan of wildtype Caenorhabditis elegans. Results of the project may be useful in understanding what components of botanicals extend lifespan and provide neuronal protection. Using Alaskan botanicals provides a local focus, as well as having ethnobotanical value in studying the medical potential of traditional foods. The effect of lowbush cranberry was tested by running C. elegans lifespans at various concentrations of botanical extract. The extract was also tested for anthocyanin concentration, to provide insight on how anthocyanin affects healthy aging.en_US
