Experts in the News: Anderson and de Cabo’s co-edit special journal on Caloric Restriction and Biology of Aging View MoreBACK

 

The January 2018 issue of The Journals of Gerontology, Series A: Biological Sciences and Medical Sciences  has been co-edited by 2016 Glenn/AFAR Breakthroughs in Gerontology (BIG) Award winner Rozalyn Anderson, PhD, FGSA and 2014 Vincent Cristofalo Rising Star Award in Aging Research winner Rafael de Cabo, PhD.

This issue also marks Dr. Anderson’s debut as co-editor-in-chief, in a related press release notes:

"Remarkably, caloric restriction has been shown to be effective in delaying aging in multiple species and the results in humans look equally promising," Anderson said. "Indeed for many studies, CR is used as the gold-standard for enhanced longevity against which new drugs and anti-aging strategies are measured."

Dr. de Cabo co-authors the articles "Caloric Restriction Mimetics Slow Aging of Neuromuscular Synapses and Muscle Fibers" and "Caloric Restriction Study Design Limitations in Rodent and Nonhuman Primate Studies" in this issue.

Rozalyn Anderson, PhD, FGSA, is an Assistant Professor in the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health Department of Medicine.

Raphael de Cabo, PhD, is Senior Investigator and Chief, Translational Gerontology Branch and Chief, Experimental Gerontology Section, at the National Institute on Aging.
