To help aging populations, classify organismal senescence.

Cathy Slack has joined an international group of experts, scientists and medics, to create a position statement which lays out a framework for properly and comprehensively classifying and staging the severity of ageing-related diseases. The position statement, published in Science, lays out a new healthcare framework to help ageing populations stay healthier for longer.

Ageing populations involve urgent and unmet healthcare and economic needs related to chronic disease and multi-morbidity, which require solutions at the national and international level. The statement is a ‘call to action’ to governments, the WHO and the scientific and medical community to come together and develop the classifications and staging systems utilising the framework put forward as the basis for future of diagnosis and treating ageing-related diseases, including directly treating all ageing tissue and organs.
