Frederick F. Peelor III (Rick) is a Research Associate in the Translational Biogerontology Lab. Rick earned his B.S. in Chemistry from Colorado State University after years on the road with the Dead. Rick specializes in biochemical isolation procedures and has helped to develop numerous techniques that are cornerstones of the lab. When Rick’s not busy in the lab you can find him spending time hunting for obscure vinyl records and second- hand stores with his two daughters. Rick also likes to make good use of his mechanical savvy by restoring vintage pinball machines and arcade games, on which he owns the high score on each one.
