Aging Under the Microscope: A Biological Quest
Doug Dollemore (au)
Gerontology was a young science when the Nat. Inst. on Aging was created in 1974. At that time, knowledge of aging clustered around specific diseases assoc. with advancing age; the notion that aging equated with decline & illness was widespread. Now, 3 decades later, the science base has grown in depth, breadth, & detail, with new insights into the processes & experience of aging. Where gerontologists once looked for a single, all-encompassing theory to explain aging, they are now finding multiple processes, combining & interacting on many levels. Cells, proteins, tissues, & organ systems are all involved, & gerontologists are now able to discern many more of the mechanisms by which these components cause or react to aging.
