Biology of Ageing

Ageing is the single largest risk factor for disease in developed countries, and poses a great challenge both socially and economically. A selection of articles shows how research into ageing involves the elucidation of the basic biochemical, genetic, physiological, and neurological mechanisms underlying the process of ageing and analyzes how nutrition, environment and exercise can influence ageing.
