Researchers have found that by manipulating a single RNA molecule, they can reverse some aspects of cellular aging and regenerate aged cells. Old cells resist regeneration As we grow older, our cells gradually age, leading to the development of various diseases. Therefore, inducing cellular regeneration is one of the approaches that researchers are using to…

Researchers at Duke University have managed to create functional human muscle tissue using skin cells as the starting point[1]. This research builds on their previous work from 2015, when they grew the first functioning muscle tissue using cells obtained from muscle biopsies[2]. Being able to create muscle cells using non-muscle tissue opens the door for…

The reprogramming of cells is a well-established technique in medicine and has been for over a decade now. It allows the en masse creation of patient-matched cells and is the basis for multiple current therapies. Cellular Senescence and Cellular Reprogramming share mechanisms Induced pluripotent stem cells (also known as iPS cells or iPSCs) can be…

We are holding our second Journal Club live stream event on June 27th at 13:00 EST/18:00 UK. Oliver Medvedik, Ph.D., and the 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…

Elena Milova brings us another interesting interview from the recent International Longevity and Cryopreservation Summit, where she caught up with a Senior Scientist at the National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET) of Argentina, Dr. Rodolfo Gustavo Goya. Dr. Goya admits he used to be a rebel from a young age. At 17 he decided…
