Buck Podcast: Episode 4 LIVE! Guest @foundmyfitness
joins Gordon to explore insights from studies on #nutrition, #exercise, #inflammation, psychological stress, and more, as well as the crucial role of science communicators in today’s media.

Our latest blog post introduces Buck professor @birgits61642917, one of the most collaborative scientists in the field of age research. Birgit is our mass spectrometry guru and is working with human tissue samples to understand how cells talk to each other https://www.buckinstitute.org/blog/scientist-spotlight-birgit-schilling-phd/

Another reason to keep moving: new study in twins links exercise to positive epigenetic changes. Research in @SciReports shows more active twins had epigenetic markers linked to lowered metabolic syndrome ➡️ lead to heart disease, stroke & type 2 diabetes https://www.eurekalert.org/news-releases/973407

Brain aging is not one-size-fits-all. Congrats to Furman lab for study @PNASNews which breaks open black box between aging & neurodegeneration. Research shows functional brain networks are affected in different ways by aging, gender & blood immune factors https://www.buckinstitute.org/news/brain-aging-is-not-one-size-fit-all-chronological-age-biological-age-and-gender-affect-the-shrinkage-of-different-brain-areas/
