Aging fluidity & omics signatures

In this episode, Alice Limonciel and Vadim Gladyshev discuss the use of omics in aging research, the place of metabolomics in a field largely dominated by DNA methylation, how aging research can impact all of biomedical research, and the reversibility of aging markers in various models.
