LEAF Vice President Dr. Oliver Medvedik and host of our monthly Journal Club recently did a podcast with Future Grind where he discusses his interest in aging research and his views on life extension. At the age of 18, he had many things he wanted to do with his life but he decided back then…

At the Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, Cooper Union in New York City, we will be hosting a special one-day conference focused on aging research and biotech investment. Developing therapies from initial concepts, through clinical testing, and ultimately to market takes a pipeline, and right now, that pipeline is being built to support the next step…

Today, as part of our series of articles that cover the Hallmarks of Aging, we are going to take a look at the role of proteins in cellular function and how they play a key role in aging. Proteins are essential for cellular function Proteins are large, complex molecules that regulate almost everything in your…

Researchers from the University of Texas have discovered how NAD+ creation and consumption in cells is linked to glucose metabolism and their transformation from preadipocytes into adipocytes, or as most people know them, fat cells. INTRODUCTION Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is an essential small molecule that is involved in a variety of physiological and pathological processes….

Researchers at Brown University have discovered a way to stimulate cellular autophagy, which is a natural recycling system built into every cell in the body. This has the potential to combat many age-related neurodegenerative diseases. What is autophagy? Autophagy means “eating of self” (from Ancient Greek “auto” = self, “phagein” = to devour). Autophagy is…

Researchers from the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the University of Kansas, and the National Center for Advancing Translational Science (NCATS) have discovered a compound that can block the spread of some types of cancer cells. Preventing cancer metastasis Metastasis is how cancer spreads from an initial site to a secondary site within the host’s body;…

Today, we wanted to bring your attention to a new review that takes an in-depth look at genomic instability, senescent cell accumulation, and its role in aging. DNA damage as a driver of aging Genomic instability, otherwise known as DNA damage, is thought by many researchers to be a primary reason why we age. Damage…

Professor George Church of Harvard Medical School has co-founded a new startup company, Rejuvenate Bio, which has plans to reverse aging in dogs as a way to market anti-aging therapies for our furry friends before bringing them to us. Dogs first, humans next The company has already carried some initial tests on beagles and plans…

Today, we have an interview with the Longevity Research Institute, a new group set to launch in April 2018 of this year. The goal of the Institute is to identify therapies that can demonstrably extend healthy human lifespan by 2030 at the latest. Searching for longevity There are dozens of compounds and therapies that have…

On May 1, around 200 scientists from the Genome Project-write (GP-write) met in Boston and announced the first target of their project: the creation of cells that cannot be infected by viruses. What is the Genome Project-write? GP-write includes sub-projects like the Human Genome Project-write (HGP-write), which was formally announced on June 2, 2016, and…
