The clearance of senescent cells has been receiving a great deal of attention in the last year or so, and quite rightly so given the impressive results thus far. As the body ages cells become damaged and cease dividing entering a state known as senescence. Normally these senescent cells destroy themselves through a programmed cell…

Most advocates of life extension report facing resistance to the idea of increased lifespans by medical means when trying to disseminate this idea among general public. Resistance manifests itself in many forms, ranging from concerns such as overpopulation to concerns about unequal access to life extending treatments. But the most unexpected thing is probably that…

Over the past few weeks CellAge has been producing a number of video shorts to answer questions about their current fundraising campaign on Lifespan.io, so we have compiled them here in a single digest. Their project aims to develop synthetic biology tools for detection and removal of toxic senescent cells that accumulate with time, causing…

The Lifeboat Foundation is a nonprofit organization devoted to encouraging the promotion and advancement of science while helping develop strategies to survive existential risks and the possible abuse of technology. They are interested in biotechnology,…

< Life extensionism is a global movement with long-term traditions. The idea, that aging is similar to a disease and should be treated as such, was first suggested in early 1900s by Elie Metchnikoff, the Nobel Laureate in Physiology/Medicine of 1908 for the discovery of phagocytosis, a vice director of the Pasteur Institute (Paris). Since…

  CellAge – the best of AMA By Steve Hill and Elena Milova  CellAge, together with a leading synthetic biology partner, Synpromics, are poised to develop a technology allowing for the identification and removal of harmful senescent cells. Senescent cells accumulate with age until they reach pathological levels and contribute to age-related diseases and chronic…
