About this book


bhe aim of the book was not to focus the age-dependent modifications of one specific biological systems or phenomena, but the attempt was pursued to cover several fields in which the biological research on aging is going on. The fundamental purpose of this planning was to offer the PhD students an advanced text that could raise the possibility of an interdisciplinary discussion on a wide and complex field that is very suitable to be utilized as an example of the connection existing between advanced teaching and experimental research.
