Topical Collection for Immunity & Ageing: Towards Biomarkers of Human Immunosenescense by Ruth R. Montgomery (Yale University, USA) and Alan Cohen (University of Sherbrooke, Canada).
Towards Biomarker of Human Immunosenescence is a thematic series of the journal Immunity & Ageing. ‘Immunosenescence’ describes the multifactorial changes in the immune system with advanced age. To increase our understanding of the conditions of immune function in aging, the focus of this special issue is to document biomarkers of age-related immune conditions. We seek articles which highlight validated biomarkers or approaches to quantify immune aging, clarify heterogeneity among changes that accrue in aging, identify mechanisms underlying the altered state, or highlight where interventions may serve to improve health. Articles may be commentaries or original research. Articles especially welcomed will address conceptual topics, detectable biomarkers, or clinical implications.
This collection of articles has not been sponsored and articles have undergone the journal’s standard peer-review process.
