Ageing: Research needs social science

Translational biomedical research into ageing and longevity needs to include social science if it is to produce interventions for slowing physiological decline (Nature511, 405–407;10.1038/511405a2014).Promoting a healthy lifespan depends on social...

Ageing: Develop models of frailty

Good preclinical models of ageing are needed to discover the molecular mechanisms behind declining human physical performance (Nature511, 405–407;10.1038/511405a2014). The latest animal models of frailty are a step in the right direction.For exampl...

Madagascar: Risk review is under way for invasive toad
