The Future of Aging Research

  • Rajindar S. Sohal


Usually the task of a Rapporteur is to summarize the ideas presented by various speakers and to provide, predict or speculate about the future directions of research. However numerous ideas about the nature of the aging process were presented at this Symposium and they do not fit within neat categories. Nor could I catalogue or even recall all of them. Furthermore, it would be very presumptious on my part, and perhaps inherently unfair to some people, to say that these particular ideas are worthy of notice while others can be igndred. I will let you be the judge of the relative appeal of the various points of view that have been expressed.
