BIOL 329

Biology of Aging

A study of why and how animals and people age. Includes an evaluation of the causes and consequences of biological changes that occur during aging from the cellular to the whole animal level. Topics of discussion include evolutionary and mechanistic theories of aging, demography and age structure of populations, the use of modern methods to test mechanistic theories of aging, and the use of long-lived versus short-lived animal models to inform us about basic aging processes.

Not open to Biological Sciences majors except by consent of advisor.
