Aging is a complex yet natural process. The effect of environmental factors, genetics and routine wear and tear on our bodies eventually takes a toll in huge variety of ways.  It is the result of living that brings unavoidable health problems! Over time, the cells of our bodies age as we do, resulting in their inability to replicate and they become damaged and die, causing our bodies to age and disease to develop.  Stem cells have the unique ability to grow into any cell type within the body and therefore offer huge potential for treatment of a wide range of disease.  Scientists are investigating how stem cells can be used to prevent, slow down or reverse this process and combat age-related conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and vision loss. Join Genomic Medicine researcher, Dr Diane Lees-Murdock, as we discuss how stem cells were uncovered and how they are currently being used to treat disease as well as how they could be employed for further health benefits in the future.

  

This event is part of the Ulster University Healthy Ageing programme for the NI Science Festival
