"The Killifish and the wrinkles of my father" - Dario Valenzano on ARTE


The short life cycle makes the Killifish extremely interesting for aging research.

Dario Valenzano and his group investigate the evolutionary genetic basis for lifespan and ageing. For their studies they use the African Killifish (Nothobranchius furzeri).

Now arte television has visited Dario and interviewed him about his favourite animal and its role in ageing research.
