Scientists have successfully reversed the decline in cellular stress response in drosophila flies [1]. Our cells rely on epigenetic regulation to do their various jobs: while a muscle cell has the same genome as a liver cell, the difference in gene expression is what sets them apart. With age, these complex epigenetic patterns can go...

A group of scientists has created a neural network that identifies senescent cells by their morphology and can be used for senolytic drug screening [1]. Image recognition is a showcase triumph of artificial intelligence. While this problem was considered extremely hard to crack in previous decades, algorithms have now exceeded human abilities in multiple cases....

A new review paper delivers evidence that exercise, a powerful anti-aging tool, may be a natural senolytic [1]. Cellular SenescenceAs your body ages, more of your cells become senescent. Senescent cells do not divide or support the tissues of which they are part; instead, they emit potentially harmful chemical signals, collectively known as the senescence-associated...

Tina Woods is a UK-based founder of several social enterprises in healthcare and longevity and the author of the book Live Longer with AI, which we recently reviewed. In this interview, Tina shares valuable insights on how social entrepreneurship works in our field, what governments can and must do to promote healthy aging, and what...

We interviewed a group of Russian biohackers who performed a plasma dilution experiment on themselves. This experiment, the first of its kind, was based on previous mouse studies by Drs. Irina and Michael Conboy. Some molecules, while essential for various body functions, can be harmful when overproduced. Inflammatory cytokines, such as transforming growth factor beta...

Scientists have discovered a new telomere-protecting mechanism in embryonic stem cells. This discovery can bring us closer to solving the notorious problem of telomere attrition and to understanding the immortality of cancer cells [1]. Telomere AttritionTelomeres are DNA regions located at the ends of a chromosome. Their normal length is 8-10 thousand base pairs, yet...
