Delivery of Therapeutics for Biogerontological Interventions From Concepts to Experimental Design
Auteur : Lai Wing-Fu
Delivery of Therapeutics for Biogerontological Interventions: From Concepts to Experimental Design provides an exploration of the translation of bench works to practicable tactics to retard the aging process. Using the support from recent advances reported in literature, this title takes advantage of delivery technologies to develop biogerontological interventions, from concepts to testable experimental design. The comprehensive overview provided will facilitate planning of research in interventive biogerontology, and will point to clearer directions for translation of existing advances in delivery technologies from the laboratory to real practice. This is a perfect reference and a starting point for scientists, clinicians, as well as those working or interested in the field of biogerontology, biomedicine or nanotechnology.
