Connections Between Aging And Cancer

At MUSC’s Hollings Cancer Center, research into the connections between aging and cancer is led by Besim Ogretmen, Ph.D., Smart-State Endowed Chair in Lipidomics and Drug Discovery.

Ogretmen’s team found that cancer cells have specific ways to resist the way normal cells die. They do so by protecting the tips of their chromosomes (telomeres) from age-related damage.

Ogretmen will be speaking about these connections in a fun, easy-to-understand way at MUSC's Science Café on April 9.
