Why do I live so long?

from Understanding Animal Research

Naked molerats can live for more than thirty years in captivity, far more than than other rodents. What is more they don't appear to get cancer. We don't know why they live so long, but sequencing the naked mole rat genome might give some clues. In this video we hear from Dr Chris Faulkes from Queen Mary, London University. Chris has a colony of molerats in London and showed them to me during our interview. We've uploaded a transcript of the full interview to give you even more insights into naked mole rats and what their unique biology can reveal.
