Özet

In this brief report, aging in biogerontology science perspective has been discussed based on the Turkish literature review with major key recommendations for future studies. Biogerontology in Turkey has focused on general retardation of the aging process giving priority to caloric restriction and oxidative stress mechanisms. The most popular investigation area for the scientists has been the oxidant and anti-oxidant systems in different tissues. However, the Turkish biogerontology science needs more manpower, economical and infrastructural and other resources for the promising studies in the future.
