Dietary restriction is a well-known way of extending lifespan and postponing age-related disease in many species, including yeast worms, flies and rodents. But not until a recent study by Scripps Florida investigator Dr. Matthew Gill did scientists have a clue about why. The recent study identifies a new role for a biological pathway that not only signals the body’s metabolic response to nutritional changes, but also affects lifespan. Read more about Dr. Gill’s research at Scripps Florida.
