Gordon Lithgow, PhD The Buck Institutue for Research on Aging “Aging as a Target for the Prevention of Chronic Diseases” We study human chronic disease in silos and tend to treat symptoms rather than causes. Research on simple laboratory animals suggests that aging is a common cause of many such diseases and that pharmacological interventions targeting aging promote health. Can we translate these finding into the clinic?
