All areas of biology are relevant to aging research -- in fact, they
are all necessary for aging research.  You're right that there are
plenty of geneticists in biogerontology, but there are also plenty
of biochemists, plenty of physiologists, plenty of cell biologists,
etc.  As for biophysics, just search PubMed for "biophysics aging"
and you'll see there's no shortage of work to be done.
