Researchers at multiple sites that are part of the GSBSE program seek a better understanding of the biological mechanisms underlying the aging process by investigating the genetic, cell signaling, and environmental clues that control aging and age-related diseases. Research topics include the immune system and aging, the impact of aging on regeneration, the regulation of stem-cell pluripotency, and developing treatments that retard or prevent specific diseases associated with aging.  The Center for Aging Research at The Jackson Laboratory and the Katharine Davis Center for Regenerative Medicine and Aging at MDIBL are focused locations for research on aging.
