Shareable Science: What the “wellderly” can teach us about the genetics of healthy aging

Aging affects everyone, right down to our genetic core, but there’s plenty of evidence showing that each individual experiences the effects of age differently. As it turns out, some people are predisposed to a less disruptive (a kinder, gentler) aging process. New research hopes to uncover why that is.
