Abstract: Because aging takes a lifetime to study, answers about it can be slow in coming. Scientists have to wait for an organism to die to gain insight into its demise. Moreover, that requirement renders the study of aging in humans--and tests of interventions that might retard it--nearly impossible. However, physiological or molecular measures besides life span that would provide a more practical indicator of aging might exist. Can we find such biomarkers?
