At the recent Longevity Therapeutics Conference in San Francisco, we had the chance to interview Hanadie Yousef, the co-founder and CEO of Juvena Therapeutics. Juvena is isolating proteins from embryonic stem cells that promote tissue regrowth. Can you describe in more detail Juvena's approach to developing protein therapeutics that promote tissue regeneration in the elderly?...

On this trivia episode of X10, Veera quizzes Nicola and Giuliano on stem cells, giving them five genuine stumpers from Ulla-Kaisa Peteri that leave them unsure and puzzled throughout.

A new study recently accepted by iScience has shown that a specific genetic alteration can selectively remove pluripotent stem cells from stem cell therapies in order to purify them for use in treatment. The cells we don't want As we age, our stem cells both decrease in number and become less efficient in replenishing somatic...

A recent review shows the current state of the industry with regards to using human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) to create cells that are useful for the study of, and therapies for, the human heart. Pluripotent Stem Cells Stem cells are the cells that form every other cell in the body, and adult humans naturally...

A new study outlines multiple ways in which epiblast stem cells can be reprogrammed back into a fully pluripotent state, paving the way for a better understanding of epigenetics. The role of epigenetics Epigenetics are why our cells, which all have the same DNA, differ in function. A bone cell has the same genetics as...

Earlier this year at the Undoing Aging conference in Berlin, I had the opportunity to listen to a debate between Dr. Vadim Gladyshev of Harvard Medical School and Aubrey de Grey of the SENS Research Foundation. The topic was "Is comprehensive damage repair feasible?" What followed was a friendly and interesting discussion about the three...
