Aims and scope
The science of healthy old age requires its own platform to bring forward new ideas, and to encourage the scientific publication of innovative and bold experimental manipulations in this regard.
Biogerontology therefore provides a peer-reviewed forum for publishing original research data, new ideas and discussions about:
Modulating the aging process by physical, chemical and biological means, including transgenic and knockout organisms;
Cell culture systems to develop new approaches and health care products for maintaining and/or recovering the lost biochemical functions;
Immunology, autoimmunity and infection in aging;
Vertebrates, invertebrates, micro-organisms and plants for experimental studies on genetic determinants of aging and longevity;
Biodemography and theoretical models linking aging and survival kinetics.
original research reports;
reviews, hypotheses, new methods and interviews;
special issues on specific topics relating to aging, health and longevity.
