Researchers have demonstrated that epigenetic age can be halved in rats by using signals commonly found in the blood. Epigenetic changes One of the proposed reasons we age are the changes to gene expression that our cells experience as we get older; these are commonly called epigenetic alterations. These alterations harm the fundamental functions of...

Researchers have developed a way to modify an existing cancer drug with toxic side effects into something that is less toxic to blood platelets and more effective at removing harmful and inflammatory senescent cells, one of the reasons we age, from mice. What are senescent cells? As you age, increasing numbers of your cells enter...

A group of researchers has succeeded in engineering a new kind of microscopic bio-object that may one day be used for personalized diagnostics and targeted delivery of drugs. The object consists of a genetically modified E. coli bacterium and nanoerythrosomes (small vesicles made of red blood cells), and it demonstrates a substantial improvement in motility...

We were at the recent Longevity Therapeutics Conference in San Francisco, and we had the opportunity to interview Irina and Michael Conboy from UC Berkeley about their pioneering work on blood factors and aging. Irina is a member of our Scientific Advisory Board, and the Conboys' work is well-known to rejuvenation advocates, as they are...
