As we leave February behind, there’s much to recap and much to look forward to; so, grab a cup of your favorite drink, and let’s have a look at the recent and upcoming events in the rejuvenation biotech world. Yet more funds for the SENS Research Foundation As we’ve seen last month, SRF’s hopes for…

Researchers at the School of Molecular Sciences at Arizona State University have discovered a potential way to supercharge our stem cells and reverse some aspects of cellular aging. The Hayflick limit Normal cells cannot divide indefinitely; they have a built-in replicative limit, which is often called the Hayflick limit after its discoverer, Leonard Hayflick. This…

The next edition of Journal Club will be on March 1st, 2018 at 13:00 EST/18:00 UK live on our Facebook page. And yes, we know it’s the February edition of the club and it’s airing in March but we could not broadcast sooner due to things happening at Cooper Union beyond our control, will we…

Caloric restriction has long been known to increase the lifespan and healthspan of most studied animals. Research also shows that animals given a calorie-restricted diet are also generally more able to regenerate tissue damage following injury. Caloric restriction improves tissue regeneration A new study by the Lengner lab at the University of Pennsylvania has identified…

Just a quick update to let our supporters know that the MouseAge Say Cheese T-shirts and mousepads have started shipping today. The special Sci-fi T-shirts will be shipping by the end of next week too. So if you qualified for both shirt designs you should see them both arrive together towards the end of next…

In a new study, researchers at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center have shown that the epigenetic alterations associated with cancer evolve in an erratic manner during the early stages of tumor formation [1]. These tumor-associated epigenetic changes ultimately focus on a subset of genes that are also observed in aging. Cancer and senescent cells…

The latest of the regular “commentary on some recent theses” publications by Dr. Aubrey de Grey and collaborators has been released today. As is usual in these pieces, there is commentary on a variety of recent research topics, including the cellular senescence of astrocytes in the brain, which may lead to new therapies to combat…

Research shows that aging is far from a one-way process and that it is, in fact, plastic and subject to intervention. The aging processes are the foundation of age-related diseases, which include cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and heart disease. Researchers are increasingly realizing that in order to treat these diseases effectively, they must target the aging…

Today, February 21, was the birthday of Jeanne Louise Calment – the oldest confirmed living human being, who lived for an amazing 122 years and 164 days! Just imagine all the history she had seen, how much the world changed during her lifetime, and all the knowledge and wisdom she had gained. What if advances…

Back in November 2017, the FDA announced a comprehensive policy framework for the development and oversight of regenerative medicine products, including novel cellular therapies. Both draft guidance documents had 90-day comment periods, and we at LEAF joined forces with the Niskanen Center to submit comments to the FDA to ensure that the voice of the…
