It has been a busy few months since we launched our Lifespan Heroes campaign on the aim of which is to help us expand the scale and scope of our activities. I thought it was a great time to tell you about the things we have been doing thanks to the support of our patrons and what we have planned for the future.

May saw the launch of our brand new monthly Journal Club, this is a regular live broadcast to our Facebook page where we discuss the latest scientific research papers hosted by Dr. Oliver Medvedik.

The topic for the May Journal Club was the recent paper by Ocampo et al. where researchers reset age-related epigenetic changes in living animals for the first time. They achieved this by using a technique similar to how iPS stem cells are created and were able to reprogram aged dysfunctional cells back into cells that work more like young cells.

You can watch the journal club video here where Oliver dives into the technical details of the study and its ramifications.

June will see the next installment of Journal Club and this will be thanks to the support of our Lifespan Heroes. We will shortly be announcing the new research for discussion and remember, if you would like to see us do even more live events like this and other exciting activities, please consider supporting our work.
