Undoing Aging - Forget about Slowdown and Aim for Reversal?

Moderation: G. Fuellen, Rostock; M. Gogol, Heidelberg; A. Simm, Halle (Saale)

For most scientists, the systematic reversal of ageing processes is in the realm of science fiction. Then again, recent experiments with senolytics and heterochronous parabiosis appear promising. This session is not designed as pro-and-contra, and it is not inviting speakers with optimistic and pessimistic viewpoints. Instead, scientists with a-priori neutral positions on this topic were invited to assess the state of the art, and potentially, to give their perspective of future trends.
