Studying neural stem cells could shed light on how environmental aspects interact with genetic risk factors for dementia, says University Professor Caleb Finch.
The COVID-19 pandemic highlights the need for international collaboration and effective solutions for challenges posed by aging populations.
USC researchers say their studies on air pollution and cognitive decline — one involving humans and one with mice — provide evidence that cleaner air may reduce risk for Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
Associate Professor of Gerontology and Sociology Jennifer Ailshire joins Professor George Shannon to discuss the impacts of air pollution, global aging and how factors like location and education can influence the way we age.
University Professor Caleb Finch proposes a new model to describe how small changes in cells can contribute to significant differences in lifespan.
Having walkable cities, good transit and the opportunity to work and connect would be good for residents of all ages.
The “Alzheimer’s Exposome” framework illustrates how environmental and genetic factors interact to more fully illustrate disease risk.
USC and Duke researchers say the framework illustrates how environmental and genetic factors interact.
University Professor Caleb Finch is helping us understand the relationships between aging, our genes and our environment through his studies of ancient mummies and premodern societies.
