Journal Club returns live to our Facebook channel on June 29th at noon Eastern Time with Dr. Oliver Medvedik. This month, we are taking a look at rapamycin, a drug that has long been believed to slow down aging, and how it changes the way DNA is stored inside cells to support gut health and...
PEARL Rapamycin Campaign
Today is a doubly important day: it marks the final day of the PEARL campaign and it is a celebration of another victory for the life extension community. PEARL smashed its initial fundraising goal and sailed through its two stretch goals, raising just under $183k thanks to the generous support of the community. What is...
Chromatin and histones
Researchers have demonstrated that rapamycin, a drug that has long been believed to slow down aging, changes the way DNA is stored inside cells to support gut health and longevity [1]. This improvement to DNA storage has been observed in both fruit flies and mice in the lab, and the researchers believe that those benefits...
Zalzala interview
We are very excited to be crowdfunding PEARL, one of the few human trials of rapamycin, which is probably the most promising anti-aging molecule known today. Dysregulation of nutrient sensing (the ability of cells to adjust their metabolism to the amount of nutrients available) is thought to be one of the nine hallmarks of aging....
Mitochondrion
A new study conducted by a team of Japanese scientists and published in Scientific Reports details how cells can have their damaged mitochondria destroyed and replaced with healthy ones, offering a potential solution to the problem of mitochondrial dysfunction. Why we Age: Mitochondrial DysfunctionAs they age, the mitochondria in our cells lose their ability to...
