Ageing is a complex yet natural process. Over time, the cells of our bodies age as we do and can die or become damaged, meaning various disease can develop. Stem cells have the unique ability to grow into any cell type within the body and therefore offer huge potential to slow down or treat age-related diseases.
Join Genomic Medicine researcher, Dr Diane Lees-Murdock, to learn how scientists are using stem cells to help treat age-related conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and vision loss, as well as finding out 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.
