Register today for BAAM on Mar 11! Space is limited and filling up fast! https://t.co/a5ta6NO0lQ

AFAR experts Judy Campisi of @BuckInstitute & @UnityBiotech , Jim Kirkland of @MayoClinic , and Nicholas Musi @UTHealthSA @NathanShockCtrs lend insights to @techreview on first human trial of #senolytics. https://t.co/1LUygCT4ra

Scientists are looking for ways to detect #Alzheimers earlier and the blood-brain-barrier may provide a clue. A recent study in @NatureMedicine shows that leaky capillaries in the brain may be an early biomarker of cognitive impairment. #livebetterlonger https://t.co/WioAtMcjIX

.@EricVerdin, Pankaj Kahapi, @GeriSciDoc, and Simon Melov gave fantastic presentations about their tips for healthy #aging. We had a full house today despite the rain and had a great discussion! Video of the entire seminar will be posted soon — stay tuned. #livebetterlonger

Meet one of our founders, @EricVerdin, CEO of the @BuckInstitute. His lab, The Verdin Lab, studies the relationship between aging and the immune system. Learn more about Eric and his work here : https://t.co/9gw5dAmQok
