This module gives an overview of different gerontologized measures and resources.
- The toolkit comprises a set of power point slide sets (modules) intended to serve as a resource for persons delivering presentations aiming to heighten and facilitate older adult inclusion in clinical and translational research.
A module on the research implications of aging, multimorbidity, polypharmacy, and inter-current health events.
- August 13, 2021Researchers from the University of Minnesota Medical School are collaborating with the Mayo Clinic to test the use of a senolytic therapy against COVID-19. The therapy targets the fundamental biology of aging. Initial findings, published June 8 in Science, suggest that using drugs to clear out older, damaged cells could reduce the inflammation and immune system overreaction that leads to severe or

The action of an immune cell called a neutrophil may contribute to tissue aging, according to a new study. As neutrophils do their job, they may damage chromosomes in nearby cells which, over time, may lead to cellular senescence. This new concept may help clarify cell aging. It also suggests targeting neutrophils might be helpful in treatment of age-related disease. This research was funded, in

For the last two years, the National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA) has partnered with the National Institutes of Health to raise awareness about the All of Us Research Program (AoU). The All of Us Research Program is inviting one million people across the U.S. to help build one of the most diverse health databases in history. NHCOA’s role in the AoU program is to raise awareness about health

In an unexpected discovery, UCLA researchers have found that a gene previously known to control human metabolism also controls the equilibrium of bone and fat in bone marrow as well as how an adult stem cell expresses its final cell type. The findings could lead to a better understanding of the disruption of bone-to-fat ratio in bone marrow as well as its health consequences, and also point to the
