Naked mole rat
A research paper published in Nature by Dr. Vadim Gladyshev and his team has investigated the epigenetic aging of the naked mole rat, an animal whose mortality rate does not appear to increase with age. Why we Age: Epigenetic AlterationsEpigenetic alterations are age-related changes in gene expression that harm the fundamental functions of cells and...
The July Journal Club hosted by Dr. Oliver Medvedik looked at the recent SIRT6 evolutionary biology paper by Dr. Vera Gorbunova and collaborators, showing a relationship between enhanced SIRT6 function and longevity. The study took a deep dive into SIRT6 in multiple species and how it appears to support longevity to a lesser or greater...
Today, we have an interview with Dr. Vera Gorbunova, who talks about the current understanding of the mechanisms of longevity and genomic stability in exceptionally long-lived mammals and how this knowledge might be used to create therapies to extend healthy human lifespan. Dr. Vera Gorbunova is an endowed Professor of Biology at the University of...
BRINGING REJUVENATION BIOTECHNOLOGY AND INVESTORS TOGETHER At the Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, Cooper Union in New York City, we will be hosting a special one-day conference focused on aging research and biotech investment. Developing therapies from initial concepts, through clinical testing, and ultimately to market takes a pipeline, and right now, that pipeline is being...
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Vera Gorbunova of the University of Rochester has joined our Scientific Advisory Board. Dr. Gorbunova has a B.S. from the University of St. Petersburg and a Ph.D. from the Weizmann Institute of Science. Having grown up in a family of scientists, it's no surprise that she became a...
