I have finished drafting the Power Point presentation for the Society’s 39th annual meeting in Portland Oregon early next month. I am still polishing up the presentation, fixing mysteriously broken links, adding citations, etc., but I have put it online where it can be previewed by my readers at Towards a Systems Theory of Aging. The conclusion of the presentation is “The two theories Programmed epigenomic changes and Decline in functioning of the stem cell supply chain are complimentary and equivalent and reflect cutting-edge developments in molecular and cell biology and genomics. They have the potential for providing a framework for an overall systems view of aging that knits together a large collection of traditional special theories of aging.” Expect minor changes and improvements between now and the time of the conference.
With this done, I am happily getting back to my regular blogging activities. As always, any and all comments are most welcome.
