As we age, many parts of our bodies break down, never to be repaired. It turns out that the same is true of our cells. New research findings from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center scientists point to microscopic systems that degenerate over time, triggering cellular aging that may in turn spur human aging and age-related diseases.
