If you follow aging science—and my guess is that you’re one of those mortal, aging types who do—you might want to take a look at the latest issue of Scientific American (the January 2012 issue), which has a cover story I wrote for the magazine about research on target of rapamycin (TOR) and its implications for aging and finding ways to slow it down. Accompanying the article is a blog I wrote about how politics and faulty perceptions are preventing the huge practical promise of aging research from being realized, and why we should change that ASAP. There’s also a slide show about the very different rates of aging (and longevity) across mammals, and a piece on the extraordinary longevity of naked mole-rats, an adaptation of part of my book’s chapter on aging across species.
