Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn won the Nobel Prize for her research into telomeres, the structure that protects our chromosomes and, in turn, our genetic heritage. She joins us to talk about how telomeres contribute to how we age, the subject of her book “The Telomere Effect: A Revolutionary Approach to Living Younger, Healthier, Longer” (Grand Central Publishing).

On March 28, Elissa Epel, who worked with Dr. Blackburn on her research, will visit SMU to talk about their findings in a conversation sponsored by Momentous Institute.
