Description
The long-term consequences of exposure to excess stress on the initiation and progression of many age-related diseases are well established. The period of intrauterine life represents among the most sensitive developmental windows, at which time the effects of stress may be transmitted inter-generationally from a mother to her as-yet-unborn child. The elucidation of mechanisms underlying such effects is an area of intense interest and investigation. Aging, by definition, occurs with advancing age, and age-related disorders result from exposures over the life span of factors that produce and accumulate damage. The novel concept advanced in this proposal is that t...
