We are holding our second Journal Club live stream event on June 27th at 13:00 EST/18:00 UK. 

Oliver Medvedik, Ph.D., and the Ocean level Patrons will be discussing the research and the implications of epigenetic alterations on aging and as a primary aging process. The event will be streamed live to our Facebook page for viewers to watch, and a recording will be made available later on our Youtube channel
 
The research being discussed this month will be this recent paper:
 
Marión, R. M., de Silanes, I. L., Mosteiro, L., Gamache, B., Abad, M., Guerra, C., … & Blasco, M. A. (2017). Common telomere changes during in vivo reprogramming and early stages of tumorigenesis. Stem cell reports, 8(2), 460-475.
 
In this study, the research team followed up the work by Ocampo et al. which was discussed in the May Journal Club, and also showed that telomeres are also reset when epigenetic changes are reversed in a living animal. This means that it may be possible to reset two of the primary hallmarks of aging in living animals leading to the reversal of age-related decline.
 
Journal Club is part of a host of new activities and content this year and is a result of the support we have received from the Heroes Campaign currently running on Lifespan.io. If you would like to see more content like this, please consider becoming a Patron today.
