While cellular senescence is well established in vitro, the induction, persistence, frequency, and function of senescence in vivo is a recent line of research with a lot of potential for new therapeutic approaches. For the Wiggers-Bernard Conference: Senescence in vivo, we have invited top scientists from the field. The talks focused on the role of senescence in physiology and pathology, and how to modulate senescence in vivo.
The event took place in Vienna on the 14th of June at the „House of Engineers“ Palais Eschenbach, Vienna, Austria. It was organized by Mikolaj Ogrodnik, Marco Demaria, Johannes Grillari as program chairs and Nadja Ring and Heinz Redl as co-organizers, in collaboration with the International Cell Senescence Association (ICSA) and the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Traumatology, the Research Center in Collaboration with AUVA.
