A recent study has suggested that A.Ceratii, a parasite that feeds on small life forms, including the ones that form algal blooms, contains mitochondria that have no mitochondrial DNA, and at least some of this DNA is found in the parasite’s own genetic code. However, a few genes found in humans are missing and replaced…

On January 28, 2019, we held a webinar with the SENS Research Foundation as part of a new ongoing series of research webinars. During the webinar, we asked Dr. Aubrey de Grey how close we might be to achieving robust mouse rejuvenation (RMR) and robust human rejuvenation, and his answer was somewhat surprising. RMR is…

Our work is largely supported by the generosity of our monthly patrons, the Lifespan Heroes, and this year, we will be showing our appreciation for that support with the launch of a brand new initiative – our new webinar series where you can meet the scientists working on the solutions to aging and age-related diseases….

Today, we will be covering another important root cause of aging, mitochondrial dysfunction, which is one of the Hallmarks of Aging [1]. What are mitochondria? Mitochondria, which are often called the powerhouses of cells, act like miniature factories, converting the food we eat into usable energy in the form of a chemical called adenosine triphosphate…

Today, we have an update from the MitoSENS team over at the SENS Research Foundation. As some of you may recall, MitoSENS was the first project we hosted on our research fundraising platform Lifespan.io back in August 2015. The project was successfully funded and raised $46,128, which was 153% of the funds needed. The extra…

The following is an update from MitoSENS scientist Dr. Matthew “Oki” O’Connor: Hi, everyone! Long time, no update – my fault! As you all saw, our manuscript that was supported by Lifespan.io donors was published last fall. Dr. Boominathan and I have been presenting our results at conferences around the world, and I can tell…

We have been busy advocating for rejuvenation biotechnology. Elena Milova recently attended the first International Longevity and Cryopreservation Summit in Madrid with a talk about how to deliver the most effective messages to engage the general public to support aging and rejuvenation research. We will shortly have a number of exciting articles about the conference,…

The SENS Research Foundation (SRF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose focus is on developing and ensuring widespread access to rejuvenation biotechnologies meant to bring the pathologies of old age under comprehensive medical control. SRF was co-founded in March 2009 by Michael Kope, Dr. Aubrey de Grey, Jeff Hall, Sarah Marr, and Kevin Perrott. The approach to…

Today, we are really pleased to announce that Dr. Matthew “Oki” O’Connor and the MitoSENS team have successfully had the first results from the MitoSENS project published in the journal Nucleic Acids Research. Without the support of the donors and the community, it would not have been possible to get this pioneering project off the ground. Thanks…

We have another exciting update on the MitoSENS project from the project leader, Dr. Matthew “Oki” O’Connor. We are excited to announce that our successful work of backing up two mitochondrial genes into the nuclear genome has been accepted for publication in the journal Nucleic Acids Research! Please see the announcent from our recent Rejuvenation…
