About Greg Gillispie, Ph.D.

Greg is a recent graduate from the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine. He strongly believes that age-related diseases have common underlying mechanisms at play and that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In addition to writing for LEAF, Greg continues to conduct laboratory research in stem cell regeneration and cellular senescence. He is also an avid runner, curious reader, proud dog owner, and a board game enthusiast.

A new study in Molecular Cell has shown that the benefits of hypoxia may be derived from a suppression of the inflammatory SASP. 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,...

VitaDAO wants to democratize biotech VitaDAO will aim to fund longevity research, give its members ownership of the resulting IP, and allow members to vote on the direction of the organization. Few would argue that the drug development process is efficient. Even as the technology surrounding the process gets better and cheaper, the time and...

A new study in Aging Cell has shown extracellular vesicles from stem cells to extend healthspan and reduce cellular senescence in vitro and in mice. Stem cell exhaustion is a well-studied hallmark of aging that occurs in multiple model organisms and multiple tissue types in humans. This has led to the hypothesis that bolstering these...
