Dear All:

You are cordially invited to participate in discussion of a new 'Science Against Aging' Research Plan:

The authors of this program wrote:

Please, answer 12 basic questions on the biology of ageing:

1. Why are organisms exposed to progressive and irreversible reduction of physiological functions in the final period of their lives?

2 . Why do life expectancy and speed of aging differ within one species and across species?

3. Why does experimental treatment such as caloric restriction delay a great number of age-related physiological and pathological changes and increase the average and maximum life duration in animals?

4. Do these factors affect aging and age-associated diseases independently from one another?

5. Do age-related changes in the organism increase the exposure to diseases or do diseases develop independently and only later exacerbate the manifestations of aging?

6. What are, in your view, possible points of a scientific breakthrough in research aimed at increase of longevity?

7. At what evolutionary phase did aging arise or, alternatively, has it accompanied life since its inception?

8. Are the aging processes of an organism caused by aging at the cell level?

9. To what extent are aging processes conditioned genetically?

10. Why do species with 'negligible' aging exist?

11. Are reproduction and life expectancy interrelated or independent from each other?

12. What other questions may be crucial for understanding the mechanisms of aging?

Many institutions limit access to their online information. Making this information available will be an asset to all.
