A Short List of Potential Target Genes for Near-Future Gene Therapies Aimed at Slowing Aging or Compensating for Age-Related Damage and Decline

Based on the lengthy history of posts here at Fight Aging!, I’ve put together a list of potential targets for gene therapy in the near future. Here, the focus is on relevance as compensatory therapies for aging, so this list omits the wide range of inherited disorders based on single faulty genes that will account for a large proportion of the gene therapy medical industry over the next few decades. Further, Fight Aging! only samples the stream of ongoing research, and so not every line of research ends up noted here. Thus the list is far from exhaustive. If a more complete list is needed, I recommend heading over to the GenAge online database, where you will find entries for several thousand genes in various … Continue reading A Short List of Potential Target Genes for Near-Future Gene Therapies Aimed at Slowing Aging or Compensating for Age-Related Damage and Decline
