Today, as part of our series of articles that cover the Hallmarks of Aging, we are going to take a look at the role of proteins in cellular function and how they play a key role in aging. Proteins are essential for cellular function Proteins are large, complex molecules that regulate almost everything in your...

Researchers at Gladstone Institutes in San Francisco report that a gene variant associated with Alzheimer’s works differently in mice and humans, and they also demonstrate how modifying this gene could potentially prevent the plaques associated with Alzheimer’s from forming and damaging the brain. The new study was published in the journal Nature in January 2018 [1]....

There are enough proteins to serve a function, and the concentrations...

We have been busy advocating for rejuvenation biotechnology. Elena Milova recently attended the first International Longevity and Cryopreservation Summit in Madrid with a talk about how to deliver the most effective messages to engage the general public to support aging and rejuvenation research. We will shortly have a number of exciting articles about the conference,...
