NAD+ Can Restore Age-Related Muscle Deterioration
Scientists at EPFL have discovered that Alzheimer’s-like protein aggregates underly the muscle deterioration seen in aging. But the aggregates can be reversed by boosting the levels of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), which turns on the defense systems of mitochondria in cells and restores muscle function.
Mapping Out the Future of Drug Discovery via Gene Expression Analysis
Developing a new drug is a lengthy and costly process. Daniel Alpern, Bart Deplancke, and Riccardo Dainese have developed a new technology – MERCURIUS – which offers a quick and cost-efficient way to analyse multiple gene expressions. These Innogrant winners discuss how their cutting-edge approach will help bring essential therapy to patients sooner.
