Supporting and bringing together early-career researchers in the field of senescence

What's yICSA?

yICSA stands for young International Cell Senescence Association. We are a group of PhD students and Post-Docs that aims to encourage and support early career researchers within the senescence field. Working under the umbrella of the main organisation, yICSA seeks to promote opportunities for networking and career development for PhDs and Post-Docs through events and meetings, particularly at the annual ICSA conference. As members of ICSA, you will automatically become a member of yICSA. 

If you are not a member of ICSA but would like to join our mailing list, please contact us.
