UK Cell Senescence Symposium 2019 in Edinburgh

On Friday May 10th we attended the 2019 Cell Senescence UK Symposium at Edinburgh organized by Juan Carlos Acosta and Tamir Chandra, both from MRC-IGMM, University of Edinburgh.

Sabela Da Silva-Álavarez from the lab presented her work on senescence during development and tissue regeneration in zebrafish, and I presented our work identifying and characterizing a novel family of broad-spectrum senolytic compounds.

Talks and posters were excellent, showing the enormeous interest raised by cell senescence, attracting people from very diverse fields.
