Multi-Dimensional Analysis and the Human Aging Blood System
Grant Amount: NIS 6.2 Million
About the Project
The aging of the blood system is a complex process with overarching implications for the pathogenesis of several age-related diseases. In the current study we aim to dramatically improve our understanding of aging blood using sensitive molecular techniques to analyze the dynamics of single blood cells among aging individuals. We will combine multidimensional analytical models to process clinical and molecular data and to develop preventive blood aging therapies.
