The Journal Club returns on Tuesday 28th March at 12:00 PM Eastern time to the Lifespan.io Facebook channel. This month Dr. Oliver Medvedik will be exploring a recent study which looked at the effects of prolonged fasting on human macrophages and how metabolites from that fasting increased median lifespan in Caenorhabditis elegans. Abstract Periodic prolonged...
