Call for Papers: BSRA Special Issue: COVID-19 and Ageing

Edited by Lynne Cox and Marina Ezcurra       

Older age is the greatest risk factor for severe illness and death following SARS-CoV-2 infection, and this is compounded further by co-morbidity with age-related diseases. The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly highlighted the critical need for biogerontology research into mechanisms underpinning disease susceptibility and maladaptation in older people. 

The journal Biogerontology is therefore announcing a Special Issue calling for papers that explore the scientific basis of the relationship between COVID-19 and age, mechanisms underlying increased vulnerability, and interventions to improve outcomes in older people.
