About this Research Topic
The nervous system plays a very significant role in organismal aging. Although different tissues decline at a different rate, the aging process still occurs in a coordinated manner. Tissue-tissue communications, especially, neuroendocrine system, contribute most to this process. Neurotransmission can modulate aging by secreting various signaling molecules such as small neurotransmitters and neuropeptides that impact the physiological state of distal tissue cell-non-autonomously. Recent work has uncovered an increasing number of neuroendocrine molecules and receptors involved in aging modulation. It will be interesting and important to explore the neuroendocrine system function in aging.
During the « International Conference on Innovative Solutions: Cancer, Aging and Genetic diseases » held as Worldwide Live Remote Conference from October 27 to 30, 2020, more the 200 experts, especially from China, Kazakhstan, and France - Academic, Medical, Investors, and Industrial players- will discuss the latest trends in the field of cancer-associated diseases.
This special issue of Frontiers in Endocrinology welcomes submissions (original articles, comments, reviews) of all participating labs of this International Congress that are of relevance to endocrinology in relation to aging. Contribution from other labs are also welcome.
Potential contributions are invited in, but not limited to, the following fields:
· Hormone receptors (structure, function, mechanism, modifications during aging)
· Cellular Signaling: importance for cancer development, modification in aging
· Cell biology of aging
· Epigenetics of aging
· Clinical aspects of aging
· Epidemiological aspects of aging
· Drugs for anti-aging
Keywords: neuroendocrine, aging, cellular signaling, hormone receptors, epigenetics, drugs
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
