More on impact ›
Aging has a profound impact on how the immune system functions. Aging and the Immune System publishes preclinical and translational studies that examine how aging and senescence impact the immune response. Our aim is to improve the overall understanding of aging and immunity with a focus on the translational aspects that may improve human healthspan.
In relation to aging and senescence, we encourage submissions on the following topics:
● The response to infection and vaccination
● The adaptive immune response
● Age-related changes in metabolism and their impact on immunity
● Innate and adaptive immunity
All studies should contribute insights into factors that can improve human healthspan. Included in this are preclinical animal studies, translational studies, and clinical trials. This also includes observational studies that do not yet have mechanistic insights. Studies examining basic immunology, that do not have translational relevance, are not within the scope of this specialty section.
