Sponsored: Life Effects - The Science of Longevity

Monday, 19 November

In this episode of Life Effects, we focus on the science of longevity. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live to be 100? How about 150? Life-extending technology may not be accessible today, but is it possible that something as simple as exercise could reverse the aging process right now? In this episode, we explore the aging process on a personal and scientific level. Host Sara Ivry talks to Katherine Byers who, at age 86, regularly runs road races and recently finished her fourteenth marathon. Dr. Roberta Gottlieb, head of the Gottlieb Laboratory at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles also joins the conversation. She is investigating the relationship between our cells and longevity, with a focus on the phenomenon of “autophagy” (cells reviving themselves).
