026: Increasing The Healthy Lifespans of Dogs with The Dog Aging Project
In this weeks episode Jaclyn is joined by Co-Host Rose Chipman as they interview The University of Washington's Dr. Matt Kaeberlein Co-Director of the Dog Aging Project. The Dog Aging Project is focused on increasing the healthy lifespan of pet dogs by targeting the aging process directly. Like serious science. But, don't worry - Matt does an amazing job explaining this to us non-biologist folks. If successful this study may help increase the future healthy years of our dogs (and who wouldn't want that?!).
