How and Why Do We Age?

Scientists around the world are peering deep into our cells, seeking clues to these complex questions.  Are the answers in our genes?  Does it have to do with how we process certain foods, or even how we use the very air we breathe?  Each day, researchers are seeking new knowledge that may help us all live healthier and longer lives.

Infoaging's Biology Center is designed to bring you the latest information on the biological causes of human aging. In each topic you'll find a description of and general information about that issue. You'll also find links to web and print resources on that topic.

Infoaging is still expanding. New centers on the biology of aging, including on the human genome, will be posted in the coming months.
