Worms Live Longer If Their Calories Are Restricted

I was reviewing some of my notes  on aging from a few years back –  one was from a seminar  I attended in 2013 at Stanford University. It was  titled “Frontiers in Aging- Conserved Longevity Pathways and Anti-Aging Interventions” by Matt Kaeberlein, PhD. Associate Professor, University of Washington. Dr. Kaeberlein discussed one of the keys to longevity is calorie restriction. He sited studies in worms, mice and yeast – it was compelling that in those studies – all with calorie restriction have better longevity.

What is Dr. Kaeberlin doing now?   Below is a link to his website Kaeberlein Lab.  I’ll keep my eye on this work and other work that is out there helping those Turning Sixty and Beyond or as I like to refer to it T60+ age better!
