Rodents that never age.

Human cells that never die.

New careers very late in life.

These were among the topics cited by Shane Burgess, the new dean of the University of Arizona College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at the first lecture in the “Living Beyond 100” series. The series is presented by the UA College of Science.

Several local science teachers attended Burgess’ talk, titled “Can We? And What If We Do?”

Today and in future weeks, the Arizona Daily Star will  share their impressions.
