Judith Campisi was awarded the IPSEN Foundation Longevity Prize for her anti-aging pioneer studies on the regulation and characteristics of various cell states. Using in vitro human cell cultures and mouse models, her group addresses how cell senescence states cause aging-related diseases, as well as cancer. Her most recent work has provided a link between the pro-inflammatory environment in senescent cells and cancer progression.
