How can developmental biologists contribute to the quest to delay aging in humans? Read about and provide a review of the work of one biologist, or group of biologists. Review their work, detailing their evidence, and cite any possible applications. Are you sold on this? See any valid applications for the work yet? 300-500 words with the highest grade point possible at 300 words.
Use APA format to cite sources. The textbook must be incorporated into the essay, in addition to outside sources. Gilbert, S, F. (2000). Developmental Biology. Sunderland (MA): Sinauer Associates.
Wikipedia and similar sites are not acceptable. You may use peer-reviewed research articles. One good source is the Public Library of Science.

The main idea from the book is: "Recent Studies of mice, Caenorhabditis elegans, and Drosophila suggest that there is a conserved genetic pathway that regulates aging, and that it can be selected for during evolution. This pathway involves the response to insulin-like growth factors (Gilbert, 2000, p. 573)."
You can use other sources to compete the essay as long as the support the main idea.
Longevity Name: Institution: Course: Date: For centuries man has always been intrigued by the element surrounding death, and toiled through beliefs and scientific research to try and establish the true nature of death. Ideally death is associated with age (Buffenstein, 2005). As one grows old, their chances of dying increase against all odds. Other than death, old age brings with it is
