Today, we chronicle the progress of partial cellular reprogramming and discuss how this powerful treatment may be able to reprogram cells back into a youthful state, at least partially reversing epigenetic alterations, one of the proposed reasons we age. We have created an introduction video about cellular reprogramming and if you would like to learn...

The Journal Club hosted by Dr. Oliver Medvedik will return live to our Facebook Page at 12:00 EST on Tuesday 27th of April. This month we will be taking a look at a new paper and technique for the gene editing tool CRISPRcas9. The technique allows researchers to turn epigenetic methylation off and back on...
LifeXtenShow on the tones of DNA
In this episode of X10, Nicola explains methylation in the context of language tones, showing how DNA methylation leads to DNA interpretations being slightly different between cells. He also introduces the idea of epigenetic clocks and discusses how gene expression, epigenetic alterations, and methylation are related. HELP SPREAD THE WORD Please connect with us on...
clockwork suit
These days, it seems like you cannot go for a walk without tripping over another aging clock, and today is no exception. DeepMAge, a DNA methylation aging clock developed using deep learning, has recently been created by the Hong Kong-based company Deep Longevity. There are two common ways to measure age: biological and chronological. The...
Journal Club
The journal club is back for December and we will be discussing the new Sinclair lab paper where researchers have successfully rejuvenated the eyes of aged mice using cellular reprogramming. As some additional background, we recently covered the paper in an article on the news outlet which you can find here. Join us December 22nd...
