Cellular Senescence, Cancer and Aging


Our team is interested in (i) the mechanisms regulating cellular senescence and (ii) the roles of these mechanisms and of cellular senescence in the biology of cancer and aging. Around this general theme, we are developing several research projects (see publications) focused on new mechanisms and actors of senescence identified by the team.

P Bertolino and his group are developing research projects that aim at understanding the contribution of cellularsenescence on the onset and behavior of pituitary tumors (Bertolino’s group).

Our work should in the long term make it possible to propose new strategies to impact cancer and / or other pathologies associated with aging.
