Using the African turquoise killifish as a model for studying therapies and interventions to expand healthy lifespan.
This article provides commentary on a recent paper whose authors include MDI Biological Laboratory scientists Jarod Rollins, Ph.D., and Aric Rogers, Ph.D., that identifies synergistic cellular pathways for longevity that amplify lifespan fivefold in C. elegans, a nematode worm used as a model in aging research.
