You are required to prepare a minimum of 4 page, maximum of 5 page document that discusses an item you identified in the news or recent literature that discusses some aspect of aging. 


The subject matter chosen must be something highlighted in the news/literature within the past 4 years.  In the paper, you are to:



1.  Provide the link/reference to the item that you are discussing

2.  Summarize the information presented in the article

3.  Describe the molecular mechanism that is involved within the article

4.  Discuss how this is involved in/linked to  the biology of  cancer.


 It must be prepared in Microsoft Word or a comparable software so that I can add comments, etc. for grading purposes.  Please restrict your font to Times New Roman, Ariel, Calibri or Garamond and the font size should be no smaller than 10 and no larger than 12 pt.  Please double-space your document with 1-inch margins all around.

The writing assignment will be graded on content, ability to effectively and efficiently explain the scientific topic and how it relates to aging, grammar  and punctuation.  It goes without saying that the writing must be your own original work.  I may use Turn-it-In to test for plagiarism.
