Aging Interventions - Rapamycin, NAD+ & Dog Aging Project | Matt Kaeberlein
Live Longer World Podcast #5
Live Longer World Podcast Episode #5 has been released!
My guest is Dr. Matt Kaeberlein who is a Professor of Pathology, Adjunct Professor of Genome Sciences, and Adjunct Professor of Oral Health Sciences at the University of Washington.
His research interests are focused on basic mechanisms of aging in order to facilitate translational interventions that promote healthspan and improve quality of life.
Matt has been around the field of aging for a long time and knows more about the work in the aging field than perhaps anyone else.
How Matt thinks of aging from a functional perspective
Caloric restriction and Aging
Whether NAD+ precursors are effective in slowing aging
The role of sirtuins in slowing aging
Quite a bit on Rapamycin and how it’s shown to be effective in improving the health of mice
Matt is very excited about the potential benefits of Rapamycin in reversing aging and he got me excited too.
Matt is also working on the Dog Aging project and in trying to understand aging in dogs
Finally, we end the conversation by talking a bit on what good scientific practices should look like
Matt approaches his work with an unbiased lens and that’s very respectable
Matt has a brilliant mind. We had such a comprehensive discussion on various aging interventions as I mentioned above. I had such a blast talking to Matt and I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did!
