In the March 2018 Journal Club, we talked about how the researchers found out how to supercharge stem cells in a recent article the video is now available for you to enjoy. Reference [1] Chen, Y., J.D. Podlevsky, D. Logeswaran and J.J.-L. Chen (2018). A single nucleotide incorporation step limits human telomerase repeat addition activity. EMBO. J….

In the February edition of Journal Club, we talked about the new publication by Dr. Maria Blasco which demonstrates the reversal of pulmonary fibrosis in a new mouse model. This is an important step forward for the potential treatment of fibrosis as currently there are no effective cures for this disease. We also wrote an…

Researchers at the School of Molecular Sciences at Arizona State University have discovered a potential way to supercharge our stem cells and reverse some aspects of cellular aging. The Hayflick limit Normal cells cannot divide indefinitely; they have a built-in replicative limit, which is often called the Hayflick limit after its discoverer, Leonard Hayflick. This…

The next edition of Journal Club will be on March 1st, 2018 at 13:00 EST/18:00 UK live on our Facebook page. And yes, we know it’s the February edition of the club and it’s airing in March but we could not broadcast sooner due to things happening at Cooper Union beyond our control, will we…

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a disease associated with critically short telomeres, and it currently lacks a reliable and effective treatment. Researchers at the Telomere and Telomerase Group at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) have cured the disease in mice using telomerase therapy to lengthen short telomeres. A proof of concept for an effective…

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…
