Aims and Scope

Current Gerontology and Geriatrics Research aims at scientists, geriatricians, health professionals interested in molecular, cellular, organismal aspects of gerontological research and in diagnosis, treatment, evaluation and educational aspects of geriatrics research. The journal also highlights new discoveries, approaches as well as technical developments in basic, clinical and discovery driven translational research.

The main feature of the journal is to provide an international forum where researchers, clinicians, health professionals, and health care providers can publish their work, raise awareness to issues of broad interest in the field of aging, and debate on controversial issues. The scope of the journal includes papers on physiological and molecular mechanisms that encompass the process of aging, as well as on pathological aspects and mechanisms that encompass the diseases associated with aging. Subject areas covered by the journal include all aspects of biological gerontology and clinical geriatrics research. These subject areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Key biological processes such as cell cycle, DNA repair, free radical biology, apoptosis, angiogenesis, cell signalling, immune response, inflammation, stem cell research, and cell communication
  • Emerging technologies applied to the aging research: genomics, proteomics, functional genomics, metabolomic, lipidomic, tissues arrays, and model systems
  • Biomarkers of aging: usefulness, diagnosis, prognosis, and stratification
  • Aging and longevity genetics, epigentics, and genomic instability
  • Molecular pathology of age-related diseases including atherosclerosis, neuro-degeneration, cancer, immunosenescence, arthrosis, osteoporosis, and inflammation
  • Diagnosis, approach, evaluation and treatment of major age-related diseases including Fall, delirium, cardiovascular diseases, infections, tumours, auto-immune diseases, dementia, and gait disorders
  • Clinical pharmacology
  • Epidemiology and prevention in elderly
  • Innovative therapies for age-related diseases including special clinical trials in elderly
  • Rehabilitation medicine in the elderly
  • Clinical nutrition
  • Theories of aging
