Dortmund, November 9, 2021. The ERC group Sulfaging does not associate hydrogen sulfide with the smell of rotten eggs, but rather with the secret of youth. More precisely, the researchers led by Dr habil Miloš Filipović found out that the gas protects our cells from aging. Talking to Malte Harzem from Radio 91.2, Dr Martín Hugo explains whether we can stop the aging process and how the so-called persulfidation is involved in this.

The biochemist and research associate talks about ERC Sulfaging’s research work in the podcast „Ruhrpott, deine Forschung“ (‘Research from the Ruhr Area’). In addition, he points out what the findings within this new research field imply for age-related diseases like Alzheimer's or Parkinson's.
