This book covers a wide range of complementary research areas, including work at the molecular and cellular levels, theories of aging, molecular basis of the loss of homeostatic maintenance mechanisms, lower and higher model organisms, the genetics of human longevity, clinical and molecular aspects of age-related diseases, and integrated systems like brain and immune system aging. Additions to knowledge of the molecular mechanisms of aging provided by this volume may ultimately lead to the prevention of age-related diseases.
