This volume examines basic and clinical findings on the role played by the estrogen receptor (ER) and its modulation in multiple physiologic systems. The authors examine the potential of selective modification of ER actions for preventing chronic diseases and promoting healthy aging. Research gaps and potential agendas for NIH research on ER action are identified, and related intervention strategies to extend the beneficial clinical outcomes are explored.
