We’re continuing to release talks from Ending Age-Related Diseases 2019, our highly successful two-day conference that featured talks from leading researchers and investors, bringing them together to discuss the future of aging and rejuvenation biotechnology. In his talk, The Reversal of the Aging of Human Cells: Strategies for Clinical Implementation, Dr. West discussed the differences…

Age-related changes to the signals sent and received by our cells travelling via the bloodstream are one of the hallmarks of aging. A team of researchers, including Drs. Irina and Michael Conboy, has published the results of a new study suggesting that rejuvenation might be achieved by the calibration of these signals found in the…

Researchers from Johns Hopkins University have published a new study that sheds light on skin rejuvenation, and it shares a link with what some cosmetic companies are doing using laser therapy. A link between cosmetics and regeneration During their study, the researchers found that the laser treatments used by cosmetic companies and retinoic acid, which…

Today, we would like to share with you a talk by Dr. Michael West from AgeX Therapeutics, a company developing therapies to combat age-related diseases by encouraging the body to regenerate cells and tissues. On July 12th, we hosted our first conference, Ending Age-Related Diseases: Investment Prospects & Advances in Research, at the Frederick P….

For the August Journal Club, we took a look at a new paper that shows inhibiting TGFβ can boost liver regeneration [1]. We also discussed another related paper from 2015 by Conboy et al. which showed regeneration in aged mice was possible if TGFβ was inhibited [2]. Taken together, the two papers both confirm that systemic…

For the August edition of the Journal club, we will be taking a look at this new paper which focuses on boosting liver regeneration by inhibition of TGFβ1. We will be streaming the Journal Club live from our Facebook page. Setting liver regeneration free The liver is an excellent model of organ regeneration; however, regeneration may…
