Rubtsova is an immunity researcher at National Jewish Health in Author: Camille Noe Pagán. Mar 01, · Rejuvenating the aging immune system. The ultimate goal of research in immune system aging is to use the information to develop strategies to stimulate immunity in the elderly (summarized in Table Table1). 1). As discussed above, a number of molecules have been identified whose aberrant expression contributes to aging, and targeting these Cited by: Exploring all aspects of ageing from an immunological point of view, Immunity & Ageing is an open access journal with global readership, offering rapid, rigorous peer review by a world-leading Editorial Board.
