Recent Advances in Understanding Aging

Like taxes, getting old and dying is a certainty. But the reasons for why and how it happens are only recently being understood at the physiological and molecular level.  Traditionally people thought aging to just be a “wearing down” of cells that leads to breakdown eventually of something important. But the discoveries of premature aging syndromes caused by defective genes and new understanding of gene regulation have ushered in a new wave of understanding the fundamentals of how aging actually commences. There are many facets to the new wave of research so this talk will focus on how DNA damage and inflammation are being proposed as key to understanding aging. A final review of some “anti-aging” or even “reverse aging” pharmacology will be touched upon. Some people think it could become less “certain”.
