Dr. David Sinclair AMA at Reddit Futurology
In support of the NAD+ Mouse Project over at Lifespan.io, Dr. David Sinclair will be doing an AMA on Reddit Futurology Tuesday, October 23, 2018 from 11:00 – 12:00 AM EDT. Dr. Sinclair will be answering questions from the community about his work with NAD+ biology, Sirtuins, and why the NAD+ Mouse Project is important for aging research.
To ask your question please visit the AMA thread on Reddit Futurology.
For those not familiar with NAD+ biology we did the NAD+ World series recently which explores this area of the biology of aging. We also took a look at why NAD+ appears to decline as we age and what is one of the most likely reasons for this.
Dr. Sinclair and his team at Harvard Medical School are currently hosting the NAD+ Mouse Project with us at Lifespan.io which is aiming to conduct long-term studies into the ability of NAD+ precursor molecule, NMN, to delay or even reverse some aspects of aging.
We would like to share this project video with you which explains what the research team is hoping to achieve if they can successfully fund the project.
