On January 3, Cell Metabolism published research co-authored by AFAR expert James L. Kirkland, MD, PhD exploring how in mouse studies, obesity increases the level of the brain’s senescent cells, which, in turn, are linked to anxiety.

Dr. Kirkland is AFAR’s President-Elect and a 2012 Glenn/AFAR Breakthroughs in Gerontology Award recipient.
