Evolution of senescence

So why do we age? Do all organisms age? Why do larger animals in general age slower? Why do females undergo reproductive senescence (menopause) before somatic senescence (aging of the rest of the body). Why do males and females age at different rates? We will tackle some of these questions during our next session!

You may review slides from a previous talk on the topic, as well as the brief paper “age-old question”.
