Translational Articles

The articles included in this special series from The Journals of Gerontology, Series A focus on specific topics relevant to aging. The aim is to connect basic science and clinical science, from cell biology to societal applications, all while emphasizing a translational perspective.

Read an editorial from the first translational articles series to learn more about this new section: Of Greek Heroes, Wiggling Worms, Mighty Mice, and Old Body Builders by Luigi Ferrucci, Rafa de Cabo, Nicolas D. Knuth, and Stephanie Studenski.

The translational articles can be found in each issue from January 2012 forward, with one free article from each series. The free articles are highlighted below:
