On March 23, 2019, CNBC featured AFAR expert Nir Barzilai, MD and the AFAR-managed Targeting Aging with Metformin (TAME) trial in an article exploring the potential for metformin and other drug interventions to delay the onset of age-related diseases. The article also examines how this potential is influencing consumer behavior, particularly in Silicon Valley.
