UMN Research Finds Genetic Link to Brain Aging
University of Minnesota Medical School researchers have discovered a gene that prevents aging in the brain. Researchers hope these new findings will help the development of new anti-aging drugs in the future.
Brian Engdahl, study author and professor in the Department of Neuroscience told the Minnesota Daily, “This is where the broader implication comes in. The Centers for Disease Control is focused on our work as a breakthrough on what the nonveteran population experiences. It’s a window to the larger picture.”
