In recent years it was discovered that Droso phila ha somatic stem cells in the gut epithelium. These stem cells contri bute to tissue homeostasis and lifespan control. Dr. Jasper disclosed basi c principles of stem cell maintenance in the context of aging.\nDr. van De ursen provided a proof of principle in mouse models that the accumulation of senescent cells promotes tissue and organismal aging in progeroid mouse models of accelerated aging. He will report unpublished data on the role of senescent cells in aging and the possibility to improve health and life span by removal of p16-positive\, senescent cells.\n URL: DTSTART:20150710T140000 DTEND:20150710T153000 LOCATION:Nucleus\, FLI New Building Entrance Hall\, Beutenbergstra├če 11 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VTIMEZONE TZID:Europe/Berlin BEGIN:DAYLIGHT DTSTART:20150710T140000 TZNAME:CEST TZOFFSETTO:+0200 TZOFFSETFROM:+0200 END:DAYLIGHT END:VTIMEZONE END:VCALENDAR
