Aging is a biological fact that affects almost every aspect of health and well-being. As an academic medical center, UCSF’s scientific community brings together expertise across many disciplines that can translate into new approaches and treatments. This collaboration can help people remain healthy and vibrant later in life. From stem cells to memory, understanding the molecular and cellular underpinnings of how and why we age is key to developing treatments to slow or reverse the aging process.
