BIOL_SCI 327-CN : Biology of Aging


This course examines various biological aspects of aging, from molecular to evolutionary, and explores what is presently known about how and why we age. Through discussions of experimental data from primary literature, we will study normal aging processes and disease states related to aging. Instead of providing a comprehensive overview, the course aims to develop a fundamental framework of how to think about the biology of aging and our ability to read and analyze current scientific literature. Prerequisites: BIOL SCI 219 (formerly BIOL SCI 216 or BIOL SCI 210-C), and BIOL SCI 217.
