The next Journal Club will be on October 31st at 13:00 EST/18:00 UK and will be streamed live from the Cooper Union, New York, to our Facebook page.

The last episode we talked about the hallmarks of aging, a popular aging theory that places the various aging processes into of a number of damage categories (hallmarks) and proposes solutions for dealing with them. The topic was so large we could not fit it all into one show and do it justice, so this month will be part 2 where we will talk about the hallmarks we did not cover previously.

You can read the hallmarks of aging here in this open access publication:

López-Otín, C., Blasco, M. A., Partridge, L., Serrano, M., & Kroemer, G. (2013). The hallmarks of agingCell153(6), 1194-1217.

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.
