The Mechanisms of Aging category welcomes original research and mini reviews covering a broad aspect of aging research from the basic to applied science, including human translational (clinical) studies. We are particularly interested in studies investigating the mechanism of aging using human samples as well as model organisms (from unicellular organism to vertebrate and non-vertebrate organisms). Studies using in vitro (cell culture) systems are also welcome. The broad definition of the mechanism of aging includes (1) the mechanism of lifespan determination, (2) the mechanism of age-dependent alteration of cellular- or/and tissue-function, and (3) the mechanism of age-dependent onset/progression of diseases. This section also welcomes the reports investigating interventions in aging and age-dependent diseases as these studies provide new insights regarding the aging mechanism. We will consider various types of study methods including biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, pathology, nutrition science, sports medicine, proteomics, genomics, metabolomics, biostatistics, theoretical model analysis and other scientific approaches investigating the mechanism of aging and lifespan determination.
