Epidemiologists develop new tool for measuring the pace of aging across the life course: DunedinPoAm functions as a speedometer, recording how fast the subject is aging

The tool - DunedinPoAm -- offers a unique measurement for intervention trials and natural experiment studies investigating how the rate of aging may be changed by behavioral or drug therapy, or by changes to the environment.
