Project Details

Cellular senescence, the process by which cells lose their ability to divide is a well-established mechanisms of ageing and age-related diseases. A number of ageing associated senescent biomarkers have been identified (e.g. p16INK4a and β-Gal) however, the association of these biomarkers, age and age-related diseases vary depending on the tissue analysed. A good biomarker needs to be clinically practical and easily attainable as such this project will look at the association between senescent biomarkers, tissue types and age-related diseases in humans.
