The Undoing Aging conference, a joint effort between the SENS Research Foundation and Michael Greve’s Forever Healthy Foundation, took place on March 15-17 in Berlin, gathering many aging researchers, advocates, investors, and other important members of the longevity community in one place. As we invited one of the best Russian journalists at educating the public…

Welcome to part two of a two-part series exploring NAD+ biology; you can find part one here. There are already a myriad of excellent reviews on NAD+ biology in general [1-3], so, in this article, we will be mainly focusing on the NAD+ precursor nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN). NMN and synthesis of NAD+ NMN can be…

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Vera Gorbunova of the University of Rochester has joined our Scientific Advisory Board. Dr. Gorbunova has a B.S. from the University of St. Petersburg and a Ph.D. from the Weizmann Institute of Science. Having grown up in a family of scientists, it’s no surprise that she became a…

In a paper published on March 15, 2018, in the journal Science, Stanford researchers led by Dr. Dena Leeman showed that intracellular protein aggregates accumulate within the lysosomes of neural stem cells that were previously thought not to suffer from this problem [1]. Intracellular waste disposal 101 Dysfunctional proteins and organelles within a cell constitute…

In the March 2018 Journal Club, we talked about how the researchers found out how to supercharge stem cells in a recent article the video is now available for you to enjoy. Reference [1] Chen, Y., J.D. Podlevsky, D. Logeswaran and J.J.-L. Chen (2018). A single nucleotide incorporation step limits human telomerase repeat addition activity. EMBO. J….

The aging process is accompanied by a chronic, smoldering background of inflammation that researchers call “inflammaging”. This backdrop of low-grade inflammation contributes significantly to mortality risk in the elderly and has a number of sources. Today, we are going to take a look at inflammaging and the various known sources that promote this age-related inflammatory…

Today, we wanted to bring your attention to a new open access paper. The authors here review the role of cellular senescence in the context of the cardiovascular and metabolic diseases of aging. This paper puts special focus on the aging of the vascular system and the role that accumulating numbers of senescent cells play…

This spring happens to be rich with events promoting research on aging. Just one month after the Undoing Aging conference, jointly organized by the SENS Research Foundation and the Forever Healthy Foundation, we are expecting yet another visionary event in Kazan, Russia that might prove to be another great gift to our community. Supervised by…

A team of Harvard Medical School scientists led by Dr. David Sinclair has successfully reversed the aging of blood vessels in a new study, and human trials are currently underway. The therapy restores blood vessel growth and muscle vitality and boosts exercise endurance in aging animals. Age-related muscle wastage is linked to vascular aging The…

For the first time in history, researchers have fused artificial cells with biological cells in a way that lets them work together. This opens the door for a variety of new possibilities and applications. Fusing biological and artificial cells The research team at Imperial College London uses a system that encapsulates biological cells within an…
