Show Theme: Why Telomeres are the Cellular "Fountain of Youth"?

Telomeres are the protective caps at the ends of our chromosomes that work much like the plastic caps at the end of a shoelace. Recent research has shown that telomere "shortening" plays an important role in human disease and mortality. Join Peter Greenlaw, Coach Steve Toth and their distinguished guest, Bill Andrews, Ph. D. as they explore what science has revealed about telomeres and why Dr. Andrews plans to run a 7 minute mile at the age of 130!

About Dr. Bill Andrews: he is the President and CEO of Sierra Sciences. As a scientist, athlete and executive, he continually pushes the envelope and challenges convention. He has been featured in Popular Science, The Today Show and numerous documentaries on the topic of life extension.

In his 32-year biotech career, he has focused the last 20 years on finding ways to extend the human lifespan and healthspan through telomere maintenance. As one of the principal discoverers of both the RNA and protein components of human telomerase, Dr. Andrews was awarded 2nd place as “National Inventor of the Year” in 1997. He earned his Ph.D. in Molecular and Population Genetics at the University of Georgia in 1981. He has served as Senior Scientist at Armos Corporation and Codon Corporation, Director of Molecular Biology at Berlex Biosciences and at Geron Corporation, and Director of Technology Development at EOS Biosciences. He is also a named inventor on 45 US issued patents on telomerase and author of numerous scientific research studies published in peer reviewed scientific journals.

Dr. Andrews is also an avid ultramarathon runner. And at the age of 60, he regularly competes in 100k and 100+ mile runs, often finishing at the top of his age group. Participating in these grueling races has taken him all over the world to some of the most extreme environments on earth, from Death Valley to the Himalayas.
