# s-age: small molecules, a key of eternal youth ?

<< The last years have seen great progress in unraveling the mechanisms underlying aging. It has become clear that aging is regulated by various genetic pathways which when properly manipulated  can lead to an increase in lifespanThese findings raise the exciting possibility that age related diseases could be treated by targeting aging pathways instead of the disease itself >>

<<  To investigate this possibility we have screened for small molecules that extend lifespan in C.elegans. The power of the small molecule approach lies in its enormous flexibility >>
