RE: Is biogerontology too scattered?

Robert DePugh

I am a "pro se" biochemist, now 78 years old, and have been researching the aging process most of my life. I think it was in 1983 that I attended a symposium on "The Molecular Biology of Aging" at Brookhaven National Laboratories on Long Island and met maybe 100 or so individuals that were active at that time. A few, I've kept loosely in contact with. Personally, I was rather disappointed in that meeting. I felt that from all the "experts" present, I learned very little. ---so an exchange of worthwhile information is a problem with no easy answer.
