This means that she is a perfect example of a modern longevity professional,...
Methuselah's Zoo
To understand human longevity, we need to put it into perspective. Are we relatively long-lived or short-lived creatures? After all, among all the plants and animals in nature, we find a vast variety of lifespans, from several hours to several millennia, and possibly even more. While humans are the most long-lived primates, our lifespan pales...
Microplastics
A paper published in Environmental Science and Technology has described some of the effects of nanoplastics on human liver and lung cells [1]. Microplastics and nanoplastics Plastics in the environment are gradually broken down by sunlight, grinding processes, and biological activities into smaller and smaller pieces [2]. These are the infamous microplastics, but when they...
Fat rat
In a new study published in Scientific Reports, researchers have uncovered the molecular mechanism underlying the link between obesity and joint degeneration [1]. Obesity and osteoarthritis Obesity accelerates aging and is associated with several age-associated diseases, including osteoarthritis, an inflammatory condition that leads to joint degeneration. Obesity is often accompanied by low-grade chronic inflammation, which...
Magnitude Biosciences
At Longevity Summit Dublin, Ethan Perlstein and Magnitude Biosciences revealed that a small molecule, SMER28, improves longevity in C. elegans, a common model of aging. Background One of the greatest challenges for biomedical sciences is how to slow ageing. Ageing is the major risk factor for almost all chronic diseases. And it has been estimated...
Longevity Summit Dublin
It was all about collaboration: maybe not a lot of shiny new discoveries and unpublished data, but Longevity Summit Dublin 2022 brought together researchers, investors, and advocates to forge a common vision. More attention is being brought to the last category, as evidenced by our own executive director, Stephanie Dainow, receiving the Rising Star 2022...
