The overall goals of lcs are: 1) to identify age associated changes that occur within the cardiovascular system and to determine the mechanisms for these changes 2) to determine how aging of the heart and vasculature interacts with chronic disease states to enhance the risk for cv diseases in older persons 3) to study basic mechanisms in. Specific lines of research: biological and molecular mechanisms underlying the behaviour of normal and cancer stem cells currently, little is known about the biological and molecular mechanisms that govern the initiation, progression and maintenance of cancer stem cells. This course will help you to understand the molecular changes that occur inside the human body during ageing ageing, though, is not unique to humans that's why we can make use of model systems to investigate those intricate mechanisms that drive ageing.
