Today, we are going to take a look at a new study in which scientists at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research have recently identified a type of cell that appears to be implied in thymic involution—the shrinking of the thymus[1]. Thymic involution is somewhat of a mystery in biology, a phenomenon…

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are one of the most thoroughly studied and understood stem cell types. They are used in a wide range of therapies, and the many studies using MSCs have enjoyed varied levels of success, depending on delivery methods, patients, co-therapies and other factors. Today, we will be taking a look at MSCs…

Today, we take a look at three key emerging technologies that might add extra healthy years to your life by addressing the aging processes directly to prevent or delay age-related diseases. Senolytics – Removing aged dysfunctional cells to promote tissue regeneration As we age, increasing amounts of our cells enter into a state known as…

We have been talking about a number of new studies in past Journal Clubs, so we thought it was time to get into some aging theory. We chose to cover one of the most cited and highly regarded damage theories of aging in this edition of the club. In this edition of Journal Club, we…

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…

Stem cell aging is a complex topic with many interacting processes and is widely accepted as an important factor in aging. Age-related loss of stem cell function is accompanied by epigenetic changes and alterations to how metabolism functions. Researchers believe that if we can understand the mechanisms underlying these changes, we can likely develop novel…

Researchers at UCLA have offered new hope to people losing their hair. These scientists have discovered a way to activate stem cells in the follicles to make hair grow again. The new study published in the journal Nature Cell Biology gives us a tantalizing hint that we can restore hair growth and treat conditions such…

According to a new study, aging hearts might find a new lease on life. Researchers have demonstrated that stem cells taken from young rats and given to aged rats rejuvenated their hearts, making them functionally younger in a number of ways. Young at heart The new study published in the European Heart Journal investigated the…
