I'm the only to remember a SF book about a scientist discovering a drug
in a Mongolian lichen that initially they believe to be antibiotic and
then they discover be anti-aging?

The news, also, highlight how scientific discoveries often are
unexpected. They went out to test the drugs on young rats and they ended
testing the drug on older ones. They believed to find nothing but found
something interesting. Probably the drugs could not be stored enough
time to be used with a new rat cohort or another rat cohort would cost
too much or the time allotted for the research was running out.
