Scientists reverse the aging of skeletal muscle in longevity breakthrough

Published September 21, 2022


IFL Science reports on research led by Stelios T. Andreadis, SUNY Distinguished Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, who authored a study in 2021 showing that overexpressing a protein called NANOG could help reverse aging in skeleton muscle.

“Our work focuses on understanding the mechanisms of NANOG’s actions in hopes of discovering druggable targets in signaling or metabolic networks that mimic the anti-aging effects of NANOG,” he said.
