We have had an amazing response to the NAD+ Mouse Project currently fundraising on Lifespan.io. The generous double fund matches totaling 20k were triggered in the first two days of the launch, taking the total funding to a stunning $36,000! This means that the initial project will go ahead! The initial stage of the experiment…

This month, we decided to do the Journal Club a bit earlier than usual to coincide with the launch of the NAD+ Mouse Project over at Lifespan.io. As the project is testing to see if NAD+ repletion increases lifespan, we thought that it would be an ideal time to explore NAD+ biology and take a…

Today, we are delighted to announce that we have launched a new crowdfunding campaign on Lifespan.io: the NAD+ Mouse Project by Dr. David Sinclair and his team at Harvard Medical School. NAD+ is a vitally important molecule that is found in every cell in your body and is involved in DNA repair, tissue growth, nutrient…

This month, we decided to do the Journal Club a bit earlier than usual to coincide with the launch of the NAD+ Mouse Project over at Lifespan.io, which launches on September 18th. As the project is testing to see if NAD+ repletion increases lifespan, we thought that it would be an ideal time to explore…

Today, we are pleased to announce, at long last, that we will be launching a new project on the research fundraising platform Lifespan.io. The platform helps researchers to crowdfund projects focused on healthy longevity, and this new project is no exception. The David Sinclair Lab launches a new project on September 18th over at Lifespan.io…

Today, we are going to take a look at the topic of NAD+, its precursor, nicotinamide mononucleotide, and the debate surrounding the ability of these molecules to pass through the cell membrane. What is NAD+? Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme encountered in all living cells. It is a dinucleotide, which means that it…

Science is advancing rapidly, and the field of aging research is no exception. Our understanding of aging has grown a great deal in the last decade, and we are now reaching the point at which the first therapies that target aging are starting to arrive. Unlike the snake oil of previous years, some of these…

Today, we will be taking a look at a new study showing that an NAD+ precursor was able to improve mitochondrial function in cells and flies with a model of Parkinson’s disease. Summary While mitochondrial dysfunction is emerging as key in Parkinson’s disease (PD), a central question remains whether mitochondria are actual disease drivers and…

Researchers from the University of Texas have discovered how NAD+ creation and consumption in cells is linked to glucose metabolism and their transformation from preadipocytes into adipocytes, or as most people know them, fat cells. INTRODUCTION Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is an essential small molecule that is involved in a variety of physiological and pathological processes….

Today, we have an interview with Dr. Nichola Conlon, one of the speakers at the Undoing Aging 2018 Conference in Berlin, hosted by the Forever Healthy Foundation and SENS Research Foundation. Introducing Nuchido Dr. Conlon is the CEO of Nuchido, a new company that is set to launch later this year and was encouraged in…
