A USC study found that a combination of a fasting-mimicking diet plus vitamin C delayed tumor progression and even caused disease regression in mice.
Professor Valter Longo, director of the USC Longevity Institute, is investigating how fasting and diets that mimic fasting’s effects can help immune function, including the body’s response to viruses.
The “Alzheimer’s Exposome” framework illustrates how environmental and genetic factors interact to more fully illustrate disease risk.
Large amounts of data are powering new discoveries and transforming the field of gerontology — including the tools students need in the 21st century.
Intergenerational gatherings can provide learning opportunities for all.
The 2019 GSA Annual Scientific Meeting will feature symposia, posters and papers led by USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology faculty, postdoctoral and student researchers.
Redirecting cells’ stress responses could strike a balance between defense against infections and long-term metabolic health, according to a new USC Leonard Davis study.
The Genetics Society of America and the Gruber Foundation have awarded Assistant Professor Bérénice Benayoun the 2019 Rosalind Franklin Young Investigator Award for her research in genetics.
USC and Duke researchers say the framework illustrates how environmental and genetic factors interact.
Study of the locus coeruleus – the “blue spot” – has helped researchers know more about learning, memory and Alzheimer’s disease, says Professor Mara Mather.
