A team of researchers, including Drs. Vadim Gladyshev and Steve Horvath, recently published a review of DNA methylation aging clocks, which use biomarkers to determine the biological age of a person. Aging causes epigenetic alterations to occur, including changes to DNA methylation, histone modification, transcriptional alterations (variance in gene expression), and remodeling of chromatin (a…

Today, we want to draw attention to a new study that shows how partial cellular reprogramming was able to reverse cellular aging and address age- and injury-induced blindness in mice. Epigenetic alterations One of the proposed reasons we age is the changes to gene expression that our cells experience as we get older; these are…

A new aging clock developed by Professor Steve Horvath and his research team takes measuring your biological age a step further and can accurately predict your future lifespan. The epigenetic clock As we age, our DNA experiences chemical changes called DNA methylation (DNAm); these changes are used as a way to measure age and are…

The Undoing Aging conference, a joint effort between the SENS Research Foundation and Michael Greve’s Forever Healthy Foundation, took place on March 15-17 in Berlin, gathering many aging researchers, advocates, investors, and other important members of the longevity community in one place. As we invited one of the best Russian journalists at educating the public…
