Description of Research
Summary Statement of Research Interests
Finch's main interests are the genomic regulation of aging processes. He has authored three books: Longevity, Senescence, and the Genome (1990); Aging: A Natural History (1995, with R. Ricklefs); and Chance, Development, and Aging (2000, with TBL Kirkwood). In 350 reports and reviews since 1969, Finch has lead several developments in the fields of the neuroendocrinology and pharmacology of normal aging and Alzheimer disease, and in the biodemography of aging.
