In this video Professor Robbins discusses cellular senescence in general then dives into cellular senescence in the immune system. As immune cells are present through out the body, embedded in different tissues, their senescence has the ability to impact the system in ways that other senescent cells may not.
Dr. Robbins is a Professor of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics and Associate Director of the Institute on the Biology of Aging and Metabolism (iBAM) at the University of Minnesota.
He was part of a collaborative team that was the first to identify senotherapeutic compounds, able to reduce the senescent cell burden and extend healthspan and lifespan in mouse models that are now in more than 15 clinical trials.
