Jonathan D. Grinstein’s wonder for the human mind and body led him to an undergraduate education in Neural Science and Philosophy and a doctorate in Biomedical Science where he studied how the brain forms memories and how individual cells make decisions to generate different body parts. He has 10 years of experience in experimental and computational research in the fields of developmental and stem cell biology, genetics, genomics and neuroscience, during which he was a co-author on research articles in journals such as Nature, Cell, and Neuron.
NMN May Serve as a Novel Therapeutic Approach Against Obesity 💊🔬📉
A new study from the University of Toyama in Japan demonstrated that enhanced synthesis of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), a molecule at the core of metabolism, is crucial for the development of mature fat cells, known as adipocytes, from precursors. Discovering compounds capable of regulating the size, number, and function of adipocytes and understanding their behaviors could greatly contribute to obesity prevention and treatment.
