The population of high-income countries is progressively aging. Aging is associated to cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes, neurodegenerative disorders. The elimination of senescent cells has been proven effective in delaying aging negative effects, but currently available drugs (senolytics) are characterized by a general toxicity. We aim to identity and develop anti-aging nutraceuticals by using both in vitro and in vivo experimental models.
