Description

Human Aging: From Cellular Mechanisms to Therapeutic Strategies offers an exhaustive picture of all the biological aspects of human aging by describing the key mechanisms associated with human aging and covering events that could disrupt the normal course of aging. Each chapter includes a summary of the salient points covered and futures prospects.

Human Aging: From Cellular Mechanisms to Therapeutic Strategies provides readers with the information they need to gain or deepen the skills needed to evaluate the mechanisms of ageing and age-related diseases and to monitor the effectiveness of therapies aimed at slowing ageing. The book encourages PhD and Postdoc students, researchers, health professionals and others interested in the biology of aging to explore the fascinating and challenging questions about why and how we age as well as what can and cannot be done about it.

Key Features

  • Concentrates on different processes, e.g., oxidative stress, cellular senescence and Inflammageing
  • Offers ability to access cross-sectional knowledge more easily
  • Written by expert researchers in biogerontology who are actively involved in various fields within aging research

Readership

Graduate and PhD students as well as researchers interested or working in various aspects of aging. Clinical researchers and medical professionals in biogerontology and geriatrics

About the Editors

Calogero Caruso

Calogero Caruso is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Biomedicine, Neurosciences and Advanced Diagnostics at University of Palermo. He has authored 371 papers, mostly on ageing and longevity. He was founder and editor in chief of Immunity & Ageing from 2004 to 2018. He was Coordinator of the PhD program in Molecular Medicine and Biotechnology (formerly Pathobiology) (1998-2018). Finally, with Prof. Giuseppina Candore he is responsible for the local unit of the project “Improved Vaccination Strategies for Older Adults (ISOLDA)” just funded by European Commission. The national and international recognition of his scientific achievements in the field of Biogerontology is documented by funded projects, by the number of citations of his papers, by invitations to national and international congresses and meetings, by his activity as a project reviewer and by organization of international conferences.
