melovExercise and Aging: A Scientific Update from the Frontlines
Thursday, June 27, 7:30-9pm in the Founders Room
with Dr. Simon Melov, Buck Institute
for Research on Aging

Aging is an increasingly important problem in the developed
world, with the maturation of the baby boomers, and the increased health care burden this represents. Although growing old is still inevitable, recent research has demonstrated that lifespan can be extended in simple model organisms through genetic and pharmacological approaches. Translating these basic discoveries to human beings has proven problematic, the so called "translational gap". What can be done to combat the functional decline with age which is a universal experience? Exercise is a proven therapy for combating many of the functional deficits seen with age, and Dr. Melov will discuss some of the research in this area, as well as illustrate some of the conceptual and practical difficulties in studying the biology of aging.
