Introduction and Statement of Research Recommendations
This collection of papers is the result of a workshop on Atherogenesis and Aging that was held at the recommendation of the Arteriosclerosis, Hypertension and Lipid Metabolism Advisory Committee to the National Institutes of Health and was jointly sponsored by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute and the National Institute on Aging. The workshop was held in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on June 30, July 1 and 2, 1985. The purpose of the workshop was to develop a statement of research needs to better understand the relationship between the aging process and the development of atherosclerosis.
