Gorbunova Interview
  Dr. Vera Gorbunova is a famous geroscientist who, for the last several years, has worked mostly on uncovering the amazing biological mechanisms that are responsible for the enviable longevity and resilience of long-lived species such as the naked mole rat. We talked about those feats of evolution and how they can be harnessed to...
Naked mole rat
A research paper published in Nature by Dr. Vadim Gladyshev and his team has investigated the epigenetic aging of the naked mole rat, an animal whose mortality rate does not appear to increase with age. Why we Age: Epigenetic AlterationsEpigenetic alterations are age-related changes in gene expression that harm the fundamental functions of cells and...
The July Journal Club hosted by Dr. Oliver Medvedik looked at the recent SIRT6 evolutionary biology paper by Dr. Vera Gorbunova and collaborators, showing a relationship between enhanced SIRT6 function and longevity. The study took a deep dive into SIRT6 in multiple species and how it appears to support longevity to a lesser or greater...
Today, we have an interview with Dr. Vera Gorbunova, who talks about the current understanding of the mechanisms of longevity and genomic stability in exceptionally long-lived mammals and how this knowledge might be used to create therapies to extend healthy human lifespan. Dr. Vera Gorbunova is an endowed Professor of Biology at the University of...
