Default Gordon Lithgow, Ph.D.-Protein Aggregation, Iron Overload & the Search for Longevit

Gordon Lithgow, Ph.D. on Protein Aggregation, Iron Overload & the Search for Longevity Compounds 4-7-2017

Discussed in this episode:

The role that protein aggregation plays in the aging process and neurodegenerative diseases

How heat stress activates genetic pathways, including heat shock proteins, in worms and humans that lower protein aggregation and extend lifespan in worms.

How too much iron can lead to protein aggregation and how vitamin D can prevent it.

A program, directed by Gordon, called the Caenorhabditis Intervention Testing Program which tests potential longevity compounds that may extend the lifespan of several different species of worms. This serves as a broad, early exploration that may potentially help us to find ways to enhance human longevity as well.
