This is the second part of our ongoing series of articles that discuss the Hallmarks of Aging. Published in 2013, the paper divides aging into a number of distinct categories (“hallmarks”) of damage to explain how the aging process works and how it causes age-related diseases[1]. Today, we will be looking at one of the…

The topic of the gut microbiota is increasingly in the news of late, and its connection with chronic age-related inflammation, known as inflammaging, is becoming increasingly clear. What is the microbiota? The microbiota describes the community of symbiotic and pathogenic microorganisms that live in and on all multicellular organisms, and it includes bacteria, archaea, protists,…

We are doing a series of articles that discuss the Hallmarks of Aging. Published in 2013, this paper is highly regarded in academia and is one of the most cited papers in biology, with an average of being cited once every two days. The paper divides aging into distinct categories (“hallmarks”) of damage to explain…

Stem cell aging is a complex topic with many interacting processes and is widely accepted as an important factor in aging. Age-related loss of stem cell function is accompanied by epigenetic changes and alterations to how metabolism functions. Researchers believe that if we can understand the mechanisms underlying these changes, we can likely develop novel…

The levels of circulating inflammatory cytokines and other signaling factors increase with age, contributing to the loss of tissue maintenance, wound healing difficulties, immune system dysfunction, loss of stem cell mobility and a host of other problems. However, it remains a subject of much debate as to what starts the cascade of inflammation that drives…

The use of artificial intelligence and, in particular, machine learning is becoming increasingly popular in research. These systems excel at high-speed data analysis, interpretation, and laborious research tasks, such as image assessment. One of the areas in which machine learning has been enjoying success is image recognition. Now, researchers have begun to use machine learning…

The link between inflammation, cellular senescence, aging, and cancer is a complex relationship, but a new study sheds light on how these four interact. The light and dark side of inflammation and cellular senescence Cellular senescence is a protective mechanism that helps us to stay healthy and avoid cancer by removing damaged and aged cells…

The thymus gland is located at the top of the breastbone and is where the majority of T cells are produced by the immune system. One can think of the thymus as being like an army camp where new soldiers are trained and given their weapons to fight invading forces; in this case, the T…

Many of us have experienced the uphill struggle to control our weight as we get older. We cannot eat whatever we like and stay slim like when we were younger, our holiday indulgences refusing to go away. The battle of the bulge gets harder the older we get, and there was little we could do…

A great initiative by Laura Katrin Weston one of our amazing volunteers. She is supporting research fundraising using the wonderful artwork she produces at Black Cat Studios.  Black Cat Studios is a small private recording, music production and art studio in Leicestershire, UK, providing a range of services for musicians, broadcasters, and game developers. It is really great…
