Research in biogerontology
has firmly shown that animal ageing is modifiable by identifying a suite of nutritional, genetic and pharmacological interventions capable of extending lifespan and improving health in older ages.

The study examining 6,318 adults over the age of 50 of all ethnicities, education levels and health backgrounds, was published in Cell Metabolism and authored by Valter Longo, professor of biogerontology
at the USC Davis School of Gerontology and director of the USC Longevity Institute.
