Tanning mice lead UBC team to anti-aging skin discovery (Centre for Heart Lung Innovation)
A team at the University of British Columbia may have stumbled upon an anti-aging solution for the skin, thanks to mice that aged without developing wrinkles.
The discovery was made quite by accident while a team led by David Granville, a researcher at the Centre for Heart Lung Innovation of UBC, was conducting experiments on blood vessel damage prevention.
“I've always had an interest in aging and how blood vessels age and how they become injured and how they repair themselves in the context of atherosclerosis,” Granville told CTV's Canada AM from Vancouver.
