About this series
During the last 40 years, the study of the biological basis of aging has progressed tremendously and it has now become an independent and respectable field of study and research. Several universities, medical institutes and research centers throughout the world now offer full-fledged courses on biogerontology. The interest of students taking such courses, followed by undertaking research projects for MSc and PhD studies, has also increased significantly. Cosmetic, cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical industry's ever increasing interest in aging research and therapy is also obvious. Moreover, increased financial support by the national and international financial agencies to biogerontological research has given much impetus to its further development.
This five-volume series entitled " Biology of Aging and its Modulation" fulfills the demand for books on the biology of aging, which can provide critical and comprehensive overview of the wide range of topics, including the descriptive, conceptual and interventive aspects of biogerontology. The titles of the books in this series and the names of the respective editors are:
Suresh I.S. Rattan, PhD., DSc., Series Editor and Editor-in-Chief, Biogerontology, Danish Centre for Molecular Gerontology, Department of Molecular Biology, University of Aarhus, Denmark
