María Blasco sobre retrasar el envejecimiento y extender la vida (with S/T in English)

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Excerpts from an interview with Dr. María Blasco, Director of the Spanish National Cancer Research Center (CNIO), where she covers how telomeres shortening induce aging, how artificially lenghtening telomeres has proven to extend lifespan in animal models like mice, and what the impact will be in human health and lifespan once the techniques (gene therapies) get effectively translated into humans.

The interview took place on May 6, 2021 as part of a program organized by the Madrid Planetarium, to contribute to a better orientation of the students of the last years of high school when deciding which university studies further engage.

The language used is not intended for an audience of scientists but rather accessible to all audiences.

The entire interview was made in Spanish but I ADDED S/T in ENGLISH FOR THE EXCERPTS SHOWN in this video.

In the description is the link to the entire interview which as I said was made in Spanish.
