Nobody is invincible to gradual physiological decline. Until recent human history, you would have considered yourself lucky to reach your forties. Now, a modern lifespan and lifestyle (those extra few calories and sofa evenings with Netflix) can mean years of infirmity.
Science that fascinates me tries to improve the human healthspan by focusing on pathophysiology that occurs before disease manifests, such as altered energetics, cellular senescence, and chonic inflammation. I see these as being at the heart of the 'silver tsunami' defining our generation.
Specifically, my focus is on maintaining and restoring normal nutrient sensing in the liver. A healthy liver means a healthy metabolism, less diabetes, and less cardiovascular disease.
