Brenner Laboratory Publishes in PLoS Biology

The Brenner Lab was recently recognized in an IowaNow article entitled, “UI researchers find simple life forms communicate benefits of calorie restriction,” for their study, “Calorie Restriction-Mediated Replicative Lifespan Extension in Yeast is Non-Cell Autonomous,” recently published in PLoS Biology. Brenner Lab Postdoc Szu-Chieh (Christy) Mei was first author of this work. The study revealed evidence that baker’s yeast cells not only extend their own lifespan in response to caloric restriction but also communicate with other cells to share the benefit of caloric restriction.
