Imad, among two other researchers, supervised a novel research at his lab,
mediated by his flag-organism the Spalax, showing a surprising linkage
between aging and COVID-19 tendency. In the current research, which follows another recent paper of the lab explaining the extraordinary longevity of the spalax (Odeh et al Aging Cell.), the researchers report on surprising capability of maintaining a “fresh” immune system along life-span, that may be useful to combat COVID-19.
