Sirtuin Biology in Medicine: Targeting New Avenues of Care in Development, Aging, and Disease fills a significant void, providing a unique resource for elucidating the most recent research and advances on the biology of sirtuins, the application of these pathways upon cellular biology, and the translation of sirtuin pathways for the treatment of multiple disease entities. Scientists, physicians, students and pharmaceutical industry researchers from diverse backgrounds will find this book to be a go-to resource for both the biology and medical applications that focus on sirtuins.
- Elucidates the research and advances on the biology of sirtuins, the application of these pathways upon cellular biology, and the translation of sirtuin pathways for the treatment of multiple disease entities
- Summarizes the multidiscipline views and publications on this diverse topic, covering cell development, cardiovascular and pulmonary systems, neurodegenerative disorders, cancer and metabolism
Researchers (endocrinologists, cell biologists, molecular biologists, pharmacologists, vascular biologists, neuroscientists, etc.), Physicians (all disciplines including internal medicine, oncologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, cardiologists, etc.), pharmaceutical industry experts
