• Immortality Rundown – Senolytics discussion

    The Bridge Cafe on Elm

    Senolytics are a class of small molecules which can selectively induce death of senescent cells, cells in an altered state associated with ageing and age-related diseases. At this meetup, we'll examine the role senolytics can plan in life extension therapies, and review the efficacy (and side effects) of those currently available, as well as potential senolytic agents undergoing trials. Have one you'd like to research and discuss with the group? Comment below and we'll look forward to hearing from you at the meetup. In the meantime, take your vitamins and see you then!
