History Nicotinic acid is a form of water-soluble vitamin B3. Vitamin B3 and was discovered in 1937 by American biochemist Conrad Elvehjem and as a result cured pellagra, a disease caused by niacin deficiency that causes horrible skin lesions, diarrhea, dementia and even death. This compound is now commonly marketed as niacin and is the…

During my recent journey to Saint-Petersburg to attend the in situ education program of the International Institute on Ageing of the United Nations, Malta (INIA), I asked one of the main speakers, former Head of the UN Programs on Ageing Dr. Alexandre Sidorenko, to find a few minutes to talk about his work. After joining…

Today we offer you an interview with Dr. Marvin Formosa, director of the International Institute on Ageing of the United Nations, Malta (INIA). But first let’s find out, how the issue of population aging was first introduced into the agenda of the United Nations, and why the UN body with focus on aging is located…

The SENS Research Foundation has announced a collaboration with the Buck institute for Research on Aging. The two foundations have collaborated a great deal in the past and the focus of this new research is to be work on cellular senescence in relation to the age-related decline of the immune system. This research was made possible through…

The CRISPR system (Clustered Regularly Interspersed Palindromic Repeats) has exploded onto the biotech sector as a relatively simple, highly efficient and fast method for precisely introducing breaks into genomic loci [1-2]. The realization that it is a prokaryotic acquired immune system, although less mentioned, has been equally paradigm changing [3]. Ironically, it’s the system’s high…

On May 16-19th renowned researchers and advocates of healthy life extension will gather in Paris to discuss recent breakthroughs in regenerative medicine. The conference organized by the International Cell Senescence Association (ICSA) “The Ins and Outs of Cellular Senescence: Understanding the Biology to Foster Healthy Aging and Suppression of Disease” will take place in the…

Spring is the best time to celebrate life and remember all the good things we have achieved to improve and protect human life. One of the organizations which contributed the most to the development of healthcare systems around the globe is the World Health Organization founded by the United Nations. WHO’s Constitution came into force…

The battle against aging is not going to be an easy one, and it will likely require the most refined tools modern science has to offer. Among them, artificial intelligence may be one of the most promising, and is being extensively used by biogerontology researchers such as Dr. Alex Zhavoronkov. Boasting an impressive collection of…

The new research work on senolyic drugs by Baar et al. uses a rationally designed molecule that selectively targets senescent cells in vivo, both in an accelerated aging mouse model, and in normally aged mice as well, with few if any side effects[1]. Senolytics are a new class of potential anti-aging drugs that function by specifically…

Science and technology play a vital role for human prosperity! In its ideal form science is a systematic method that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations to understand the world in an objective and logical way and through this derive predictions about the future. Therefore science stands in sharp contrast to…
