Key Considerations to Optimize Preclinical Aging Studies

Aging research studies are lengthy, resource-intensive, and require pre-planning. During this presentation, we will examine how mouse phenotypes change over time, review study design considerations, and share several examples of using aged C57BL/6J mice in preclinical studies. Join us as we discuss the following:

  • Key phenotypes of aged mice
  • Considerations for developing a study using aged mice
  • JAX resources that support aging research
  • Neurological changes in aged mice
  • Age-related immunological deficiencies related to metabolic disease and cancer
