Best Article Award 2019


Partial reprogramming induces a steady decline in epigenetic age before loss of somatic identity (Olova et al. 2019)


  • Endothelial toll-like receptor 4 maintains lung integrity via epigenetic suppression of p16INK4a (Kim et al. 2019)
  • Restored immune cell functions upon clearance of senescence in the irradiated splenic environment (Palacio et al. 2019)
  • A human tissue-specific transcriptomic analysis reveals a complex relationship between aging, cancer, and cellular senescence (Chatsirisupachai et al. 2019)




Anatomical Society Studentships

The Anatomical Society is delighted to announce the award of four new research studentships. These awards are the outcome of the Society’s annual studentship competition open to its members.

Studentships will start in October 2021 and each award funds 3 years of postgraduate training and study towards a PhD.

Studentships provide funding for research focused on specific projects associated with anatomical science. For details of these funded projects, please click here.

Scope of Journal & Info for Authors

Impact factor:7.238

2019 Journal Citation Reports (Clarivate Analytics): 34/195 (Cell Biology)3/51 (Geriatrics & Gerontology)


Aging Cell publishes novel and exciting science which addresses fundamental issues in the biology of aging. All areas of aging biology are welcome in the journal and the experimental approaches used can be wide-ranging. With the rapid developments in genomic sequencing and analysis, and availability of new technologies to analyse functional genomics and proteomics, the combined powers of genetics, biochemistry and cell biology are leading to the very rapid production of new information. Aging Cell welcomes the results of these programmes.

Aging Cell covers: 

  • Genes and functional genomics 
  • Cell proliferation, senescence and death 
  • Signaling and gene expression 
  • Stem cells and aging 
  • Cell stress and damage 
  • Integrative physiology 
  • Biodemography and comparative studies 
  • New theories of aging and longevity
