Life Extension Advocacy Foundation, in collaboration with Singularity University Moscow Chapter and consulting group Deloitte, are hosting in Moscow an expert discussion on how to inform society about the potential and the advancement of gerontology and preventive medicine. These experts believe that attracting people’s attention to the capabilities of medical technologies to prevent aging might…

Serge Faguet is a Russian entrepreneur, the owner of a profitable travel company, Ostrovok, and the founder of several tech startups, including a new secret, AI-related one in Silicon Valley. For the last few weeks, his name has been all over the internet because of the article “I’m 32 and spent $200k on biohacking. Became…

In recent articles, we have talked about the potential of the immune system to help repair tissue, including for peripheral nerve damage, Atherosclerosis, and Parkinson’s. Immune cells not only fight infection; as this new study shows, they also help the nervous system remove debris, paving the way for nerve regeneration following injury. While previous studies…

I don’t think anyone has ever asked me this question, but I do know from other advocates that this isn’t unheard of. Quite frankly, I think this question is rather bizarre, and its implications are even more so. In this article, I’m not going to question the assumption about the inevitability of death; rather, I…

A new study has shown that it is possible to reverse the scarring that forms after a heart attack, turning it back into healthy heart tissue. The researchers demonstrated that they can change fibroblasts (scar tissue cells) into cardiomyocytes (heart muscle cells), though getting to the bottom of how this happens has been a challenge….

Everlasting boredom is a common concern when it comes to the idea of extended human lifespans. There are many who expect life to become empty and meaningless with time because everything has been already experienced; there is nothing else to discover, nothing else can surprise or please. This idea has become so ingrained in our…

In these six years I’ve spent as a rejuvenation advocate, I’ve had to deal with the traditional objections raised against the idea of longer lifespans. These objections touch a variety of different topics, but they aren’t terribly many: we’re talking about maybe a dozen of them, and these days, I hardly ever hear an objection…

The first results of two human clinical trials using stem cell therapy for age-related frailty have been published, and the results are very impressive indeed. The studies show that the approach used is effective in tackling multiple key age-related factors. Aging research has made significant progress in the last few years, with senescent cell clearing…

Recently, we have explored the benefits that rejuvenation biotechnologies promise to bring to ourselves and the people close to us. I would imagine that most people have no difficulty acknowledging these benefits, but even so, many people tend to focus on potential large-scale downsides of rejuvenation while neglecting entirely its benefits on society at large….

Over the past few years, there has been a tradition of longevity researchers and activists around the world to organize events on or around October 1 — the UN International Day of Older Persons, or Longevity Day. In recent years this has been extended to include the entire month of November as a Longevity Month…
