Is Ageing Inevitable? Understanding the Biology of Ageing
Dr. Jennifer Tullet
Recent advances in the field of Biogerontology have shown that ageing is not simply a consequence of the passage of time but is driven by underlying biological processes. Here I describe some of the conserved cellular signalling pathways that control ageing and discuss how their identification, is aiding in the design of therapeutic strategies to alleviate the adverse effects of ageing and age-related disease.
