Metabolic interventions for healthy aging
During the last decades, life expectancy has increased considerably, but in many cases this increase in longevity is not accompanied by a good quality of life. Our line of research is focused on the elucidation of the molecular mechanisms involved in the development of age-related pathologies and the definition of new pharmacological interventions aiming to maintain optimal health during this phase of life.
