Aging research in nonhuman primates

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Nonhuman primates share a number of critical physiological phenotypes with humans, making them uniquely suited as models for aging, longevity and healthspan research. One of the critical needs in geroscience research today is the ability to translate how the cellular hallmarks of aging link to the development of geriatric syndromes and disease progression. This review highlights the research that has been done to evaluate cellular aging, the phenotypic characteristics of aging and health decline, and interventional testing in nonhuman primate models that may benefit healthspan and longevity.
