Ameliorating ageing, age-related diseases and cancer by targeting senescence and the p53 pathway

Ageing is a process defined by the accumulation of old (senescent) cells in tissues. It has been shown that senescent cells interfere with the normal functions of tissues and thus lead to the phenotypic changes associated with ageing as well as the establishment of age-related diseases. Read more

Targeting senescence in cancer and ageing

There is a PhD studentship available in the Senescence group, headed by Dr Jesus Gil. Senescence is a cellular response to stresses such as oncogenic signalling, DNA damage and telomere loss, characterized by a stable growth arrest. Read more

An integrative multi-omics approach to targeting cellular senescence as a drug repurposing strategy for age-related morbidities

  Research Group: Medicine
Age is a major risk factor for various human diseases including cancers, dementia, and cardiovascular diseases. Senescence is a process where cells cease dividing and undergo distinctive phenotypic changes. Read more

Modelling Telomere Dynamics in Ageing and Senescence

Through advancements in healthcare technology, the average longevity of individuals has steadily increased. Yet, ageing represents one of the greatest risk factors for a diverse range of pathologies including neurodegeneration, chronic inflammation, and cancer. Read more

Investigating the role of senescence in musculoskeletal ageing

Collaborators. Prof Jon Tobias (University of Bristol), Prof Lorna Harries (University of Exeter). The accumulation of senescent, ‘zombie’ cells occurs in many tissues with age, including bone, causing damage and dysfunction. Read more
