The human biology major says USC’s interdisciplinary outlook and short-term international programs changed his entire career trajectory.
The drugs also appear to increase chemotherapy-related cell damage in tests, raising possible risks for cancer patients taking similar drug combinations.
Periodic cycles of fasting appear to reprogram pancreatic cells and restore insulin production, according to research led by Valter Longo of gerontology and biological sciences.
A randomized trial shows cycles of a five-day fasting diet developed by Valter Longo of biological sciences and gerontology safely reduces risk factors for age-related diseases and results in loss of body fat.
The work adds to previous studies led by Valter Longo of biological sciences and gerontology that indicate similar diets could fight cancer and reduce the signs of aging.
Research from Valter Longo of USC Dornsife’s biological sciences department demonstrates health benefits in mice and yeast; three cycles of a similar diet given to humans.
Using the USC Dornsife Cognitive Neuroscience Imaging Center, scientists study Ecuadorians with a rare growth-stunting gene that may prevent disease.
Fasting triggers stem cell regeneration of damaged, old immune systems, says a recent study in Cell Stem Cell. Valter Longo was corresponding author.
Meat and cheese may be as bad as smoking, according to a new study led by Valter Longo, biological sciences professor at USC Dornsife.
