Garland Science, 2 juil. 2013 - 360 pages
Biology of Aging presents the biological principles that have led to a new understanding of the causes of aging and describes how these basic principles help one to understand the human experience of biological aging, longevity, and age-related disease. Intended for undergraduate biology students, it describes how the rate of biological aging

À propos de l'auteur (2013)

Roger McDonald received his Ph.D. from the University of Southern California and is currently a Professor of Nutrition at the University of California at Davis. Dr. McDonalds research focuses on mechanisms of cellular aging and the interaction between nutrition and aging. Using rodents as models for human aging, as well as in vitro analysis of cell growth, his research has addressed two key topics in the field: the relationship between dietary restriction and lifespan, and the affect of aging on circadian rhythms and hypothalamic regulation.
