Emphasizes the fundamental nature of the aging process, at the molecular, cellular, and organismal level and examines the principles of aging in other animal species which may apply to man. Presents the physiological aspects of the different organs/systems affected by the disease processes (e.g., cardiovascular, metabolic, immunological etc.) Discusses the theoretical models of aging.
Learning ObjectivesUpon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:
- Discuss biological basis of aging at the molecular, cellular and organismal levels
- Discuss biological aspects of aging to both health and disease-related public health issues
