    Small noncoding RNA dysregulation in Parkinson’s

    In this issue, a study led by Andreas Keller as part of the Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative reports the longitudinal profiling of circulating small noncoding RNAs (sncRNAs) in the blood of patients with Parkinson's and identifies several microRNAs as potential diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers. The cover design illustrates disease progression as deterioration in the hand drawing of sncRNA structures and shows some of the blood cell types associated with sncRNA dysregulation in Parkinson’s.

    Looking to an anti-ageist future

    Ageism, a form of social discrimination targeted specifically at older adults, is pervasive in our society, but its negative impact on the well-being of older persons is rarely recognized and its causes and consequences are not sufficiently understood. In this issue, we present a collection of review and opinion articles on the theme of ageism that all speak to the need and ways to create an anti-ageist future. Our cover image demonstrates the fallacy that older adults form a monolithic group with regards to interests and capabilities, and reinforces a sense of optimism for achieving a positive attitude toward old age.

    Aging in unity

    The cover image of Nature Aging’s first issue illustrates the notion that aging concerns everyone, pointing to the need for social unity and joined research endeavors to solve issues and seize opportunities associated with human aging. Our first issue features research and opinion articles authored by biologists, clinicians, social scientists and civil society and industry leaders that reflect the breadth of our interests, from the intricate details of the core biology of aging to public health and societal questions associated with population aging.
