Why do we age? What exactly happens to our body as we age? And how do our every-day choices affect our aging process?
In this Transatlantic Tandem Talk, Prof. Jens Brüning of the Cluster of Excellence on Aging Research CECAD at the University of Cologne, and Prof. Andrew Dillin of the University of California, Berkeley, will share insights on their award-winning research on the role of brain cells in the process of aging and aging-associated diseases.
In aging populations, questions around the processes of aging become more and more pressing as aging-associated and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and diabetes mellitus increasingly strain our health systems. Understanding the molecular mechanisms involved in degenerative aging processes can help develop new therapeutic approaches that lead to a healthier way of living for older and ill individuals, and eventually for us all.
Join us on Wednesday, February 16, at 6 PM CET to learn about:
