Aging Cell publishes novel and exciting science which addresses fundamental issues in the biology of aging. All areas of aging biology are welcome in the journal and the experimental approaches used can be wide-ranging. With the rapid developments in genomic sequencing and analysis, and availability of new technologies to analyse functional genomics and proteomics, the combined powers of genetics, biochemistry and cell biology are leading to the very rapid production of new information. Aging Cell welcomes the results of these programmes.

Aging Cell covers: 

  • Genes and functional genomics 
  • Cell proliferation, senescence and death 
  • Signaling and gene expression 
  • Stem cells and aging 
  • Cell stress and damage 
  • Integrative physiology 
  • Biodemography and comparative studies 
  • New theories of aging and longevity
