Congrats to @BuckInstitute faculty member @jenngarrison as a featured member (and alum) of the ARCS Foundation!

What does a #senescent cell spit out? Depends. Which we know b/c of SASP Atlas from the @birgits61642917 & Campisi labs! This great explainer from @GENbio is a chance for all the quadrupole time-of-flight Sciex TripleTOF 6600 and 5600 mega-fans to geek out https://www.genengnews.com/commentary/point-of-view/clues-to-healthier-aging-in-cellular-senescence/

Buck COVID-19 Webinar (tomorrow!): Please join us again tomorrow at 11am PT (2pm ET) for a live conversation with Susan Desmond Hellmann, MD, MPH, Former Chief Executive Officer, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Ask your question: https://buck2020.extendedsession.com/

Why is #COVID19 so deadly to elders?

The adaptive response weakens w/ age because there’s a decline in the number, activity & diversity of T cells.

The innate response has the opposite problem. As it ages, it causes chronic low-grade #inflammation.
