Publication in the Journal of Biogerontology


Staff at ShARM have just had a paper accepted to the Journal of Biogerontology which will be published in a special edition from the proceedings of the 8th European Congress of Biogerontology, but is available online now. The article covers the current challenges facing researchers in the field of ageing using mice and describes how ShARM aims to alleviate some of these pressures.
