ABOUT THE JOURNAL
Aging welcomes scientists in all disciplines, not only those in traditional gerontology.
Aging publishes high-impact research papers of general interest and biological significance in all fields of aging research including but not limited to cellular senescence, DNA damage and repair, organismal aging, age-related diseases, genetic control of aging from yeast to mammals, regulation of longevity, evolution of aging, anti-aging strategies and drug development and especially the role of signal transduction pathways in aging and potential approaches to modulate these signaling pathways to extend lifespan.
Aging covers (in addition to traditional topics on aging) many other topics including cellular and molecular biology (regulation of translation, cell growth, death and autophagy, mitochondria, DNA damage and repair, microRNAs, stem cells), human age-related diseases, pathology in model organisms, cancer and first of all signal transduction pathways (p53, sirtuins, PI-3K/AKT/mTOR and so on) and approaches to modulate these signaling pathways.
