Interview of Dr. J. Guicheux

Foreum The STEP team welcomes the selection of the SENOA project to identify the role of senescence in osteoarthritis and its potential targeting for the treatment of this disease. This project is supported for 600 K€ by the Foundation for Research in Rheumatology (FOREUM, Switzerland) of the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR).
Claire Vinatier will be in charge of the coordination of the working group n ° 2 with the objective of characterizing senescence and the associated molecular mechanisms in osteoarthritic joints.
