This seminar will discuss the regulation of human aging genes and understanding the aging process to enable the discovery of omics-based biomarkers for risk, diagnosis and prognosis of frailty in old adults.
Aging is increasingly becoming a common problem and is associated with frailty that results in a number of disabilities and diseases. In this seminar, Dr. Imad Abugessaisa of the Riken Center, will explore the genetic regulation of aging through the transcriptional profiling a cohort of old adults. This analysis provided insights into genetic regulation relevant to an aged population.
