Rochester biologists who study the genetics of lifespan suggest novel targets to combat aging and age-related diseases. — ScienceDaily

Natural selection has produced mammals that age at dramatically different rates. Take, for example, naked mole rats and mice; the former can live up to 41 years, nearly ten times as long as similar-size rodents such as mice. What accounts for longer lifespan? According to new research from biologists at the University of Rochester, a … Read more
