Aging Physiology Branch and Programs
The Aging Physiology Branch focuses on age-related changes affecting tissue and organ function. Research supported by this branch includes fundamental mechanisms of altered function in tissues and organs that contribute to conditions, dysfunctions, syndromes, and diseases of aging. Research is supported at molecular, cellular, and higher levels of organization including integration across tissues and organ systems. A major theme for the Aging Physiology Branch is inter-organ communication which is a topic connecting all programs in this branch.
The Aging Physiology Branch has a broad array of programs that support research on age-related changes affecting tissue and organ function. Explore details about each program below:
