About this book

This book describes the nature of aging, age-related disorders, and the molecular principles of emerging strategies for anti-aging interventions, while also discussing the discovery of targets for geroprotective drugs. Although significant medical advances in the treatment and eradication of life-threatening conditions such as cardiovascular and infectious disease have been made over the past five decades, the prevalence of age-related disorders still remains high in older populations. Intervening into aging is the next frontier in contemporary medicine, and will be of increasing importance over time, as other sources of poor health are combated more and more successfully. Given the universal interest in anti-aging strategies, the book will appeal to a very broad audience. It addresses a diverse range of anti-aging interventions – including stem cells, autophagy, senolytics, anti-inflammatory methods, and telomerase induction – that will be of interest to scientists and researchers from various disciplines in the life sciences.

Dr. Ufuk Çakatay is a senior scientist at the Department of Medical Biochemistry, Cerrahpaşa Faculty of Medicine, Istanbul University. Previously, he worked as an Associate Professor at the Central Laboratory of Clinical Biochemistry, Istanbul Faculty of Medicine. He graduated from the Department of Biology, Faculty of Science and received his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Medical Biochemistry, Cerrahpaşa Faculty of Medicine. His research interests include the optimization of bioanalytic methods for measuring oxidative stress, experimental animal models of aging, and age-related disorders. He has a long-standing interest in various protein oxidation biomarkers such as protein carbonyl groups, protein hydroperoxides, advanced oxidation protein products, dityrosine, and nitrotyrosine. Professor Çakatay has authored more than 80 publications, which include research papers, book chapters, editorials and invited reviews on free radical biology, aging, diabetes, and biological activity of alpha-lipoic acid. He has served as a guest editor, referee or member of the editorial board for more than 50 journals. He has received various prestigious awards such as the top reviewer award from Elsevier Science Publishing (2008) and serves on Istanbul University’s Committee on Animal Research and Ethics.
