A team of researchers, including renowned geneticist Professor George Church, has published a new paper demonstrating the mitigation of multiple age-related diseases using a multi-target gene therapy. Treating multiple age-related diseases at once George Church is a very prominent figure in genetics and aging research, and he created quite a stir last year when he...
Today, we want to highlight a new publication that looks at cytomegalovirus (CMV) and its potential role in the development of metabolic syndrome. What is cytomegalovirus?  CMV is part of the β-subfamily of herpes viruses, a family of viruses that are believed to have been co-evolving with their hosts for around 180 million years [1]....
