On this Journal Club hosted by Dr. Oliver Medvedik, we look at a paper in which researchers have transfered a lifespan- and healthspan-boosting mechanism from the naked mole rat, a very long-lived rodent, to mice. The paper includes researchers such as Vera Gorbunova, Steve Horvath, and Vadim Gladyshev, and it demonstrates that longevity is something that can be emulated from one species to another.
This study raises interesting questions and possibilities. Perhaps we can learn new tricks from species like the naked mole rat that do not age the same way we do.
