Abstract: Professor Zhang Xiaoling's team found that “imbalance of immune homeostasis”, “senescent cells accumulation” and “stem cells exhaustion” led to organ degeneration, based on the clinical and basic research of aging diseases of musculoskeletal system. So far, there is no effective strategy to prevent organ aging in clinic. The new concept of "aging microenvironment" is of great significance for understanding organ aging. Comprehensive interpretation of the changes of cells composition (stem cells, immune cells, Senescent cells) and gene expression in various types of cells in "aging microenvironment", Screening and identification of the novel cell and molecular targets that lead to imbalance of tissue and organ homeostasis, will be the research direction of aging diseases of musculoskeletal system.
This webinar will be moderated by Dr. Shuying Yang, Associate Professor, University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine.
