A Newfound Interest in Mapping the Signs of Cellular Senescence

Now that selectively clearing senescent cells from aged animals has been proven to produce benefits to health, tissue function, and life span, and its role in aging is well appreciated, there is a lot more interest in the research community in mapping out the biochemistry of these cells. Up until about five years ago, it was a real challenge to generate both this interest and the funding to sustain it, but better late than never.
