Optimizing the Health of Cancer Patients and Survivors by Targeting the Biology and Heterogeneity of Aging
Cancer and cancer treatment accelerate fundamental aging processes. Interventions targeting fundamental aging processes may improve the health of cancer patients and survivors. However, key knowledge gaps remain. In this webinar, Dr. Mina Sedrak will discuss the opportunities and challenges of harnessing fundamental aging processes to improve cancer therapeutics and reduce the burden of accelerated aging in cancer patients and survivors. Dr. George Kuchel will highlight how an approach pioneered at the Older Americans Independence “Pepper” Center at UConn (P30AG067988) called Precision Gerontology can help improve patient-centered outcomes by guiding the development and implementation of interventions targeting the biology and heterogeneity of aging.
