Age is linked to pathological conditions and diminished physiological functions. These include neurological and immune decline, hematological disorders such as myeloproliferative disorders, and cardiac dysfunction. It is unclear if the decline occurs by dysfunction in stem cells or if there is a decline in the tissue niche that can no longer support the resident stem cells. This special issue invite papers related to the broad topics of aging and also welcome papers that discuss if aging can be druggable. In this regard, papers describing the complexity of aging would enhance this series. Papers are also welcome on specific diseases.
