episode 4: Aging and Epigenetics (Peter Tessarz)

The aging population and challenges that arise from aging are one of the great scientific challenges of this time. In the fourth episode of the Epigenetics Podcast from Active Motif, our host Dr. Stefan Dillinger talks with Dr. Peter Tessarz from the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing about his contributions to the field of aging and also, which epigenetic factors play a role in this process.
