Dividing cells
Researchers from AgeX Therapeutics and other organizations have proved the feasibility of reprogramming banked cells derived from a supercentenarian. Their discovery portends exciting new possibilities for aging research. What is cellular reprogramming? Cellular reprogramming is the process of reverting mature, specialized cells into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which can develop into any cell type...
MitoMouse
We have had an update from the SENS Research Foundation team regarding donor gifts for the Mitomouse fundraiser.

What is diabetes? Diabetes is a disease that occurs when blood glucose levels are constantly...
Organ chip
Researchers from the Universities of Harvard and Tel Aviv have succeeded in linking up to 10 "organs-on-a-chip" via an analog of human vasculature. The invention allows for in vitro testing of drug toxicity and action, taking us one step closer to automated clinical trials and the development of personalized drugs. Chipping away at trial duration...
