Minisymposium on Health and Senescence

You are cordially invited to 4 talks, about biomarkers and interventions towards "Healthy Aging", and the mechanisms of cellular senescence, in the cancer/cardio/neuro fields. Handling cellular senescence in patients as well as in healthy people is an emerging key topic: latest research shows that doing it right can decide about disease progression, and may stop or reverse aging processes in skin and other organs. The event is free of charge, and no registration is required. For the evening, the first meeting of the "Rostock Special Interest Group on Health, Aging and Senescence" is planned.
