A discussion with Dr. Thomas Rando, whose pioneering research explores how blood from younger animals can apparently rejuvenate the cells and tissues of older animals. Rando is the head of a laboratory at Stanford University, where he is also the director of the Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging, deputy director of the Stanford Center on Longevity and a professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences, as well as an AFAR board member and multiple grantee.
