Today, we want to draw attention to a new study that shows how partial cellular reprogramming was able to reverse cellular aging and address age- and injury-induced blindness in mice. Epigenetic alterations One of the proposed reasons we age is the changes to gene expression that our cells experience as we get older; these are...
