This viewpoint is the result of a Horizon Round Table discussion of Exercise and Aging held during the 2017 Saltin International Graduate School in Exercise and Clinical Physiology in Gatineau, Quebec. This expert panel discussed key issues and approaches to future research into aging, across human physiological systems, current societal concerns and funding approaches. Over the 60-minute round table discussion, three major themes emerged that the panel considered to be "On the Horizon" of aging research. These themes include; 1) aging is a process that extends from womb to tomb, 2) the importance of longitudinal experimental studies, and 3) the ongoing need to investigate multiple systems using an integrative approach between scientists, clinicians, and knowledge brokers. With a focus on these themes, we aim to identify critical questions, challenges, and opportunities that face scientists in advancing the understanding of exercise and aging.
