Anti-Aging Drug Discovery on the Basis of Hallmarks of Aging is a comprehensive and timely book on all aspects of anti-aging strategies. The book provides comprehensive, foundational knowledge on the mechanisms of aging and current anti-aging strategies and approaches developed. Aging research has experienced an unprecedented advance over recent years with the discovery that the rate of aging is determined, at least to some extent, mainly by our genetics and modulated by environmental factors. The hallmarks of aging describe the molecular and cellular processes that govern biological aging and their variation in individuals.

Key Features

  • Covers different aspects of anti-aging research, from foundational knowledge to future perspectives
  • Provides understanding on the different hallmarks of aging and how they can be applied in the development of anti-aging drugs
  • Discusses various anti-aging strategies, including telomerase reactivation, clearance of senescent cells, stem cell-based therapy, and others


Advanced undergraduate students and graduate students as well as researchers interested or working in various aspects of aging

Chih Lin

Chih-Li Lin is a Professor and Research Fellow of Chung Shan Medical University and Hospital, Taiwan. He obtained his Ph. D. degree in the Institute of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from National Taiwan University Medical College in 2007. Lin completed his postdoctoral research on the dementia & Alzheimer’s disease in National Taiwan University Hospital, and then moved to Institute of Medicine, Chung Shan Medical University (Taiwan) in 2008 and has been promoted to Full Professor in 2019. His major interests are to understand the pathophysiological connections between brain aging and Alzheimer’s dementia, particularly studying molecular mechanisms of amyloid beta (Aβ)-induced neurotoxicity, and applications of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell technology. He is currently working to demonstrate that brain insulin resistance may play roles in neuronal aging features and contribute to pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease, Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB), and type 2 diabetes-associated dementia.
