A team of researchers, including Dr. Tony Wyss-Coray, co-founder of Alkahest, has discovered that exposing young cells to aged blood causes their gene expression to become akin to aged cells. Signaling cells to act older We have known from the heterochronic parabiosis and plasmapheresis research performed by Dr. Irina Conboy's lab and similar work done...
