Screening Method Identifies Compounds that Extend Lifespan in Mice

Screening scheme for potential senotherapeutics. Red are senescent cells; yellow are non-senescent cells. Senotherapeutics either kill senescent cells (senolytics) or otherwise suppress the senescent state (senomorphics). Credit: Fuhrmann-Stroissnigg, H., et al. 2017.
