STEM CELLS AND AGING

RESEARCH

Young stem cells renew tissues constantly, but old stem cells can no-longer produce cells for the function of the tissue at the required rate. The resulting decline manifests as aging.

PEOPLE

We started in 2013 and are now a group of about 25 pre- and post-doctoral researchers and technicians located at the University of Helsinki, Finland and Karolinska Institutet, Sweden
