Targeted Apoptosis of Senescent Cells Restores Tissue Homeostasis in Response to Chemotoxicity and Aging

Cell - March 2017 Abstract The accumulation of irreparable cellular damage restricts healthspan after acute stress or natural aging. Senescent cells are thought to impair tissue function and their genetic clearance can delay features of aging. Identifying how senescent cells avoid apoptosis allows for the prospective design of anti-senescence compounds to address whether homeostasis can [...]

Employing biomarkers of healthy ageing for leveraging genetic studies into human longevity

Experimental Gerontology - 29-06-2016 Abstract: Genetic studies have thus far identified a limited number of loci associated with human longevity by applying age at death or survival up to advanced ages as phenotype. As an alternative approach, one could first try to identify biomarkers of healthy ageing and the genetic variants associated with these [...]

KNAW-conference: ‘Challenges in Translational Reasearch to promote Healthy Ageing’

May 19 - 2017 | Leiden, The Netherlands | The aim of the meeting is to link results from basic and animal research into mechanisms of ageing to opportunities for translational applications. Age is the largest risk factor for most non-communicable and common diseases, for functional decline, multi-morbidity and for mortality. Despite the consistent [...]
