There is increasing interest in the “Geroscience Hypothesis” that manipulation of fundamental aging mechanisms will delay (in parallel) the appearance or severity of multiple chronic diseases because these diseases share the same underlying major risk factor – aging. This webinar will focus on one of these fundamental aging mechanisms, cellular senescence, and its potential role in mediating age-related bone loss, frailty, and multiple other age-associated co-morbidities.
- Define cellular senescence as one of the key fundamental mechanisms underlying aging
- Understand the role of cellular senescence in mediating age-related bone loss and frailty
- Recognize the potential of targeting cellular senescence to prevent or treat multiple age-related co-morbidities
