Research & Information

This is a must-listen interview with Peter Attia M.D. and David Sinclair, Ph.D. Dr. Sinclair is a Professor in the Department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and co-Director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biological Mechanisms of Aging, returns to the podcast to discuss the content of his new book, Lifespan: Why We Age – and Why We Don’t Have To.Dr. Sinclair is one of the worlds foremost researchers on epigenetics and aging. The entire first chapter of my book is centered around much of his researc

Another great podcast from Peter Attia M.D. In this one, Dr. Sinclair talks a lot about our good pals, the sirtuins, and how they affect aging. 

In this excellent video, Rhonda Patrick Ph.D. discusses Dr. Sinclairs research leading him to publishing his new book, Lifespan, Why We Age and Why We Don’t Have To.

Ned David Ph.D. is the co-founder of Unity Biotechnology, a company developing senolytic medicines—molecules that target and destroy senescent cells in the human body. In this episode of Peter Attia M.D.s podcast, Ned explains the science of cellular senescence and how it impacts the aging process. 

If you want to understand the aging process and how to slow it down, then you’ll need to have a good understanding of autophagy. Rhonda Patrick Ph.D. provides an in-depth look at autophagy.

“Epigenetic Aging Clocks are predictors of biological age based on alterations in an individual’s DNA methylation profile. Methylations – biochemical processes that modify the activity of a DNA segment without changing its sequence – occur naturally and regulate gene expression to control normal growth and development. With age, the methylation state of various genes may change. These changes are quantifiable and serve as a means to gauge epigenetic age, which often differs from chronological age.”

Again, Rhonda Patrick Ph.D. Delivers the goods. You can see why I’m such a big fan. Do you remember the discussion of FOXO in chapter I? Well, if you forgot then this excellent topic page will refresh your memory and much more.

Again, Rhonda Patrick Ph.D. provides the latest and greatest research and information on our good pals, the sirtuins.

And finally, from Dr. Patrick. Here’s a list of all her blog posts related to aging. You could spend days here. Thank you Rhonda!

Many people make assumptions about aging, what it is like to grow “old”, and how older age will affect them. But as we are getting older, it is important to understand the positive aspects of aging.
