Eros Lazzerini Denchi PhD, Associate Professor, The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) talks about his exciting discovery of a protein that fine-tunes the cellular clock and impacts aging and the development of cancer. The novel protein TZAP binds the ends of chromosomes and controls a process called telomere trimming. Eros provides a little perspective about the long journey in our understanding of telomeres and telomerase and the intriguing questions that this new discovery opens up.
