WILL SPAGHETTI PROTEINS PROVIDE A CURE FOR AGE-RELATED DISEASES
Tobias Madl • TEDxMedUniGraz
#TEDxMedUniGraz #metabolomics #spaghettiproteins #healthyageing - What determines how old we feel and when we die? Is there a way to extend lifespan and to maintain good health as we get older? Damage in cells of our body increase as we get older. This makes our cells less healthy, and causes biological processes to fail. Tobias Madl’s research shows that disordered proteins play key roles in cellular ageing, and are involved in a plethora of age-related diseases. In his research, he is curious to find a connection between these proteins and our eating lifestyle, and ways to rationally develop drugs targeting disordered proteins to promote healthy ageing.
