Nichola Conlon: Molecular biologist

The body’s unique ability to repair itself, with a little outside help, is the focus of a growing sphere of longevity science. One area of research concerns a molecule, known as nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), which plays a key role in many biological processes.  NAD+ declines as we age, but research has shown that, through supplementation,  youthful levels can be restored, helping us to age better.   In this episode, Dr Nichola Conlon, a molecular biologist and co-founder of Nuchido Laboratories, based in North East England, discusses her mission to develop nutraceuticals to stimulate rejuvenation. In conversation with Peter Bowes, Nichola explains her passion for nutritional interventions designed to enhance healthspan; she addresses the need to educate people about the relevance of biogerontology research and the new products that could significantly improve our quality of life. 

Recorded: December 3rd, 2020 | Read a transcript and show notes at the LLAMA podcast website.
