    Special Issue on Aging Research 


    Decline in physical function is associated with falls, recurrent hospitalization, disability, and dependency and often follows a trajectory characterized by a hierarchical sequence of impairments. The identification of potentially modifiable factors that may adversely affect the slope of this trajectory is essential to inform the development of cost-effective strategies aimed at preventing or delaying dependence in older persons. Although nutrition and body composition are generally considered as important factors contributing to decline in physical function with aging, a number of emerging gaps in the current scientific knowledge still need to be addressed.


    In this special issue, we are going to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore Aging Research. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: 


    • Physical, mental, and social changes in ageing population
    • Aging (ageing) process itself (biogerontology)
    • The effects of an ageing population on society
    • Regulation of ageing
    • Mechanisms of ageing and age-related diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, neurodegenerative  disorders   and etc
    • Anti-aging strategies
    • Cell growth and senescence
    • Modulation of DNA, DNA damage and repair


    Authors should read over the journal’s Authors' Guidelines carefully before submission, Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue’’ under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the re-search field “Special Issue- Aging Research” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
