Journal Club May 30th 13:00 EST/18:00 UK.

We are holding our first Journal Club live stream event on May 30th at 13:00 EST/18:00 UK.

Oliver Medvedik, Ph.D. and Ocean level Patrons will be discussing the research and the implications of epigenetic alterations on aging and as a primary aging process. The event will be streamed live to our Facebook page for viewers to watch, and a recording will be made available later on our Youtube channel.
The following papers are being discussed:

[1] Ocampo, A., Reddy, P., Martinez-Redondo, P., Platero-Luengo, A., Hatanaka, F., Hishida, T., … & Araoka, T. (2016). In Vivo Amelioration of Age-Associated Hallmarks by Partial Reprogramming. Cell, 167(7), 1719-1733.

[2] Sen, P., Shah, P. P., Nativio, R., & Berger, S. L. (2016). Epigenetic mechanisms of longevity and aging. Cell, 166(4), 822-839.

Journal Club is part of a host of new activities and content this year, and it is a result of the support we have recieved from the Heroes Campaign currently running on Lifespan.io. If you would like to see more content like this, please consider becoming a Patron today.

About the author
Oliver Medvedik

Oliver Medvedik

Oliver Medvedik, Co-founder of Genspace citizen science laboratory in Brooklyn NY, earned his Ph.D. at Harvard Medical School in the Biomedical and Biological Sciences program. As part of his doctoral work he has used single-celled budding yeast as a model system to map the genetic pathways that underlie the processes of aging in more complex organisms, such as humans. Prior to arriving in Boston for his doctoral studies, he has lived most of his life in New York City. He obtained his bachelor’s degree in biology from Hunter College, City University of New York. Since graduating from Harvard, he has worked as a biotechnology consultant, taught molecular biology to numerous undergraduates at Harvard University and mentored two of Harvard’s teams for the international genetically engineered machines competition (IGEM) held annually at M.I.T. Oliver is also the Director of The Maurice Kanbar Center for Biomedical Engineering at the Cooper Union, New York City. The Maurice Kanbar Center for Biomedical Engineering is open to all Cooper Union faculty and students working on bioengineering projects requiring equipment and space for tissue culture, genetic engineering, biomechanics, and related research. Faculty that is currently using the facility are pursuing groundbreaking biomedical research in such fields as biomedical devices, tissue engineering, obstructive sleep apnea biomechanics also collaborating with several major New York City-based hospitals. The Kanbar Center continues to provide space for undergraduate teams participating in the international genetically engineered competition (iGEM) during the summer, as well as space for courses that offer a biological laboratory component.
