Recently, a team of researchers, including Professor Judy Campisi, has published an atlas charting the inflammatory senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP) [1]. The nature of the SASP As we grow older, increasing numbers of our cells enter a state known as senescence. Senescent cells no longer divide to support and help maintain the tissues that they...

We had the opportunity to interview Greg Potter, Ph.D., a researcher of lifestyle factors in health throughout life, at Biohacking Conference Moscow, which was hosted at the Congress Centre Technopolis Moscow on September 19th. In a provocative 2017 publication, Serge Faguet claimed to have spent $200,000 on becoming healthier and happier through biohacking; since then,...

Researchers have launched a new database dedicated to mapping and understanding the complexity of cellular senescence in a bid to help us fully understand this age-related phenomenon.  Introducing the CellAge database The Human Ageing Genomic Resources (HAGR) is a series of databases and tools that have been developed to aid researchers on aging and help...

Researchers have shown that many interventions known to increase lifespan also share similar gene expression profiles, and this knowledge may help pave the way for identifying new interventions to increase healthy lifespan and delay the diseases of aging. Identifying longevity signatures A team of researchers, including Professor Vadim Gladyshev from Harvard Medical School, has just...

Today, we want to spotlight a new publication that charts the senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP), which consists of the various secreted signals given out by senescent cells during aging. Senescent cells and the SASP As we get older, an increasing number of our cells enter into a state known as senescence. They cease dividing and...

Determined but not complacent, grounded but hopeful, Dr. Leonid Peshkin is one of the scientists working on understanding aging so that it may one day be treated like we treat any other ailment. As he revealed in an interview with the Boston Globe in mid-2018, the idea of having to lose oneself and one's loved...
