Toxic Cellular Ooze Linked to Biological Age, Disease and Disability

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

By Sara Tiner Cells in the body usually do what they’re told. In response to cues, cells divide, grow, shrink or die as needed. But there are some cells that start to ignore the body’s order to expire: senescent cells. Sometimes called “zombie cells” for their undead lingering, senescent cells have triggered the body’s kill […]
