Helen Blau and host Russ Altman discussed the science of muscle regeneration on The Future of Everything podcast.

EPISODE SUMMARY: Helen Blau, an expert in stem cell biology, explains why our muscles weaken with age and what she and her colleagues are doing to bring strength back to tired muscles.

EPISODE NOTES: Helen Blau is a stem cell biologist and expert in why, as we age, our muscles weaken, even if we get exercise and try to stay fit. In an age when humans are living longer, our muscles are critical to living life to the fullest and Blau is helping them keep pace by recruiting stem cells to regenerate youthful muscle in older people.
