Rapamycin Does Not Interact Favorably with Growth Hormone Receptor Knockout

The scientific community is, on the whole, very focused on exploring the effects and understanding the mechanisms of single interventions. Studies that investigate potential synergies between two or more interventions are comparatively rare. This need not be the case; it seems to be a cultural thing, a product of many various influences on funding, planning, and development.
