The research and science programme “Principio de Incertidumbre” broadcasted by Radio Canal Extremadura has interviewed the ICREA researcher Salvador Aznar Benitah about the circadian rhythm—the subject of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Medicine.

In August, Aznar Benitah’s group published two studies in Cell that rejected the dogma that aging is associated with the loss of the circadian cycle of stem cells.
