Biological Mechanisms of Aging Axis

This axis aims at gaining better understanding of the biological mechanisms of aging and their associated changes.

Combining biochemical, molecular, and physiological approaches makes it easier to study various problems. The researchers are particularly interested in the molecular causes underlying the aging body's reduced ability to respond to physiological and pathological stresses, which render it more vulnerable.

The models studied include cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, immune-system decline, molecular regulation of aging muscle, and the generation of 3-D tissue substitutes with bioreactors and synthetic and biological scaffolds.
