Abstract: Companies are betting that studies of aging will reveal new routes to life-enhancing pharmaceuticals. Antiaging pills are a distant dream, in part because testing a drug for its effect on life-span is a practical impossibility and scientists haven't yet come up with a substitute measure of aging. But research on aging might yield novel ways to treat age-related disease. Along the way, private ventures are offering new resources and a variety of experiences to academic scientists.
