We are holding our first Journal Club live stream event on May 30th at 13:00 EST/18:00 UK.

Oliver Medvedik, Ph.D. and Ocean level Patrons will be discussing the research and the implications of epigenetic alterations on aging and as a primary aging process. The event will be streamed live to our Facebook page for viewers to watch, and a recording will be made available later on our Youtube channel.
The following papers are being discussed:

[1] Ocampo, A., Reddy, P., Martinez-Redondo, P., Platero-Luengo, A., Hatanaka, F., Hishida, T., … & Araoka, T. (2016). In Vivo Amelioration of Age-Associated Hallmarks by Partial Reprogramming. Cell, 167(7), 1719-1733.

[2] Sen, P., Shah, P. P., Nativio, R., & Berger, S. L. (2016). Epigenetic mechanisms of longevity and aging. Cell, 166(4), 822-839.

Journal Club is part of a host of new activities and content this year, and it is a result of the support we have recieved from the Heroes Campaign currently running on Lifespan.io. If you would like to see more content like this, please consider becoming a Patron today.

About the author

Oliver Medvedik

Oliver Medvedik, Co-founder of Genspace citizen science laboratory in Brooklyn NY, earned his Ph.D. at Harvard Medical School in the Biomedical and Biological Sciences program. As part of his doctoral work he has used single-celled budding yeast as a model system to map the genetic pathways that underlie the processes of aging in more complex organisms, such as humans. Prior to arriving in Boston for his doctoral studies, he has lived most of his life in New York City. He obtained his bachelor’s degree in biology from Hunter College, City University of New York. Since graduating from Harvard, he has worked as a biotechnology consultant, taught molecular biology to numerous undergraduates at Harvard University and mentored two of Harvard’s teams for the international genetically engineered machines competition (IGEM) held annually at M.I.T.
