Ageing Research Reviews


Ageing Research Reviews

Publisher: Elsevier B.V.

As the average human life expectancy has increased, so too has the impact of
ageing and age-related disease on our society. Ageing research is now the
focus of thousands of laboratories that include leaders in the areas of
genetics, molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, and behaviour.

Ageing Research Reviews (ARR) covers the trends in this field. It is
designed to fill a large void, namely, a source for critical reviews and
viewpoints on emerging findings on mechanisms of ageing and age-related

Rapid advances in understanding of mechanisms that control cellular
proliferation, differentiation and survival are leading to new insight into
the regulation of ageing. From telomerase to stem cells to energy and
oxyradical metabolism, this is an exciting new era in the multidisciplinary
field of ageing research. The cellular and molecular underpinnings of
manipulations that extend lifespan, such as caloric restriction, are being
identified and novel approaches for preventing age-related diseases are
being developed.

ARR publishes articles on focussed topics selected from the broad field of
ageing research, with an emphasis on cellular and molecular mechanisms of
the aging process and age-related diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular
disease, diabetes and neurodegenerative disorders. Applications of basic
ageing research to lifespan extension and disease prevention are also
covered in this journal.
