Biological aging

Biological aging is the gradual and progressive decline in system integrity that occurs with advancing age, driving risk for disease, disability, and mortality. In this portion of a talk for UGA, Dr. Belsky presents a novel DNA methylation measure of the pace of aging. This novel measure and others represent a new direction for studies of social determinants of health and efforts to evaluate impacts of health promotion interventions and social policies. The entire presentation is available here:

Dr. Daniel Belsky is Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at the Columbia Mailman School of Public Health.
