BS 212 - Biology of Aging

( 3 :0 :0 ) 3 credits

This course will explore scientific discoveries that have informed the understanding of the biology of aging. Nutritional impacts of calorie restriction, nutritional intervention in age related diseases and the effects of commonly consumed chemicals on aging processes will be discussed. Why older people are more likely to experience specific diseases, and whether or not aging is an intrinsically progressive decline in function or itself a disease, will serve as central themes for the course’s investigation.
