In this podcast, I (@aging_scientist) spoke with Dr. Rich Miller about the ins and outs of mouse aging.
The topics we discussed, roughly in this order, included the Interventions Testing Program, rapamycin, mecilizine, and other lifespan-extending drugs. We talked about the importance of genetically heterogenous mouse stocks and the issues with fast-aging progeroid mouse models. We also covered his more recent work on aging rate indicators and the difference between classic biomarkers and aging rate indicators. Finally, we talked about the importance of lifespan research, misuse of the word healthspan, and the emerging use of frailty indices in mice.
VitaDAO and Kamil Pabis, MSc (the @Aging_Scientist on Twitter) bring this podcast to you.
