Synopsis:
Aging: From Fundamental Biology to Society Impact examines the interconnection of the cellular and molecular basis of aging and societal-based challenges and innovative interventions. Sections take a societal-based angle on aging, describing several flagship initiatives for healthy living and active aging in different regions, cover the biology of aging which includes the hallmarks of aging, explain the pathophysiology of aging, describing different comorbidities associated with aging and possible interventions to decrease the impact of aging, and envision future and innovative measures to tackle aging-related morbidities.

Contributions from an interdisciplinary panel of experts cover such topics as the biology of aging to physical activity, nutrition, psychology, pharmacology, health care, social care and urban planning.

  • Provides a cross-disciplinary approach to aging at both the biological and societal level
  • Highlights frontline scientific knowledge in the biology of aging and its translation into societal interventions
  • Offers insights on the value of aging research and its future impact from a fundamental and translation point-of-view
