Research roundup: Muscles from the lab, and more

We know you want to keep up with the relentless march of progress, but sometimes it’s just too relentless. So why not forget all those endlessly scrolling feeds, and instead join us for a bi-weekly concentrated dose of all the most exciting developments in the field of geroscience? Here’s what’s happened in the last two weeks:…

James Peyer: Navigating the “Biotech Valley of Death”

Ever hear about an exciting discovery in the biomedical world, then later wonder why it seemingly dropped off the face of the Earth? In fact, it’s par for the course for potential therapeutics to fail before they ever get off the ground, guided unwittingly by their enthusiastic champions straight into a boneyard strewn with the…

Research roundup: Scars into hearts, and more

We can reprogram existing scar tissue into healthy organ tissue, but we didn’t know what was actually going on inside these newly revitalized cells until now. You know those articles blowing up in the popular press about how countering aging is “mathematically impossible”? Don’t get all excited–it’s just a new evolutionary theory of why aging…

Michael Fossel on telomerase therapy in cancer, Alzheimer’s, and more

Last week we heard the theoretical side of Dr. Michael Fossel’s mission to bring aging to its knees, and why his chosen point of attack was on the grand orchestrator of the body’s repair processes. This week he goes into the practical details: how does he plan to lengthen telomeres? What can we treat with…

Research roundup: Growth hormone receptor mutations in centenarians, and more

A study of centenarians finds a certain mutation of the growth hormone receptor gene is more common among men, but not women, compared to 70-year-old controls. But the modification doesn’t do what you might expect: though decreasing the amount of growth hormone absorbed, it also boosted protein expression when it was absorbed. This lead carriers to be…

In the media this week: Aubrey, AI, and advocacy
