Cellular senescence, discovered in 1961 by Leonard Hayflick and Paul Moorhead, is a state in which cells no longer perform their functions, instead emitting harmful chemicals that turn other cells senescent. Senescence is primarily caused by telomere shortening and DNA damage, and senescent cells are known to contribute to multiple diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s,…

Today, we want to spotlight a new publication that charts the senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP), which consists of the various secreted signals given out by senescent cells during aging. Senescent cells and the SASP As we get older, an increasing number of our cells enter into a state known as senescence. They cease dividing and…

At Undoing Aging 2019, we interviewed some of the best researchers who are involved in discovering therapies for the root causes of aging. Their research aims to ameliorate the damages of aging and may one day lead to a future without age-related diseases. Dr. Judith Campisi, one of the speakers at this conference, is a…

Last Wednesday, I landed in Berlin, Germany at around 12:30. About an hour later, I was briefly in Cafè Alex, right next to the tapering TV Tower, where I met some of my colleagues from LEAF—some of whom I had never seen in person before—as well as other volunteers and members of HEALES, our friend…

On July 11-12th, we return to the Cooper Union in New York City for our second annual Ending Age-Related Diseases conference, which focuses on the progress in aging research as well as the business side of biotech. We will be bringing you the latest aging research, investment, and business knowledge from some of the top…

On January 29-31, 2019, the Longevity Therapeutics Summit is happening at the Argonaut Hotel in San Francisco, California. The conference is a great networking opportunity with some leading names in aging research giving talks during the event. This will be a two-day conference plus a pre-conference workshop hosted by our good friend Kelsey Moody from…

Senolytics are the first therapies that directly target an aging process in order to delay or prevent age-related diseases, and they are now in human trials. Today, we think that it is the ideal time to have a look at how they work and what companies are involved. Senescent cells and aging As we get…
