Science Daily: Research sheds light on mechanisms underlying aging - Rogers Lab makes key finding in cell process crucial to slowed aging from dietary restriction, bringing us one step closer to human therapeutics
Scientists have known for decades that drastically restricting certain nutrients without causing malnutrition prolongs health and lifespan in a wide range of species, but the molecular mechanisms underlying this effect have remained a mystery. Now new research sheds light on an important genetic pathway underlying this effect, raising the possibility that therapies can be developed to prolong healthy human lifespan.
