Abstract

Insights from biology are more and more integrated into economic research. Emerging fields like neuroeconomics and genoeconomics are examples of this new research direction. Biomarkers can give valuable exogenous information to improve current models of human behavior and choices. Helena Schmidt will talk about the intersection of biology and economics. In particular she will talk about socio-economic aspects of aging, and on telomere length as a marker for that.
