The Handbook of the biology of aging, Seventh Edition, provides a comprehensive overview of the latest research findings in the biology of aging. Intended as a summary for researchers, it may also be used as a high level textbook for graduate courses. Contains basic aging processes as determined by animal research as well as medical physiology of aging as known in humans Covers hot areas of research, like stem cells, integrated with longstanding areas of interest in aging like telomeres, mitochondrial function, etc
