Specific chapters within the guide take care of age-related pathology within the mind, age-related processes in stem cells, and age-related results at the immune gadget and in bone, muscle and cardiovascular tissue. Bringing in combination the main researchers within the aging box to speak about their paintings, this guide is obligatory studying for all the ones within the biology of aging.
