GERO 5381: Biology of Aging (3)

Lecture: 3, Lab: 0, Other: 0

The Biology of Aging course is designed to provide the basics of the biology of aging with a system-by-system description of aging phenomena in the body. Course content is organized by organ systems reviewing the basics of normal physiology first with subsequent introduction to changes based on aging processes. Participation by students in discussions based on recent research on biology of aging topics will highlight the complexities of the aging processes from diverse perspectives. This course is appropriate for both upper-level undergraduate students and graduate students in health related fields and those interested in the physiological changes that occur with aging.
