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.

Lab mouse
Molecular Psychiatry has recently published a report from the University of Cambridge detailing how the brain’s extracellular matrix (ECM) changes with age, negatively impacting memory, and how modifying the components of the brain ECM can revitalize memory in mice [1]. What is neuroplasticity? Neuroplasticity is the ability of neurons to form new connections. This ability...
Glioblastoma
A report in the Journal of Cell Science has outlined different stages of cellular senescence alongside a mechanism that reverses it, along with a potential new treatment for glioblastoma. Why we Age: Cellular SenescenceAs your body ages, more of your cells become senescent. Senescent cells do not divide or support the tissues of which they...
Runner
A clinical trial of endurance runners recently published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition found nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) to increase several measures of aerobic capacity. Nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN)Nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) is a precursor of the coenzyme NAD+, which serves critical functions in our cells and declines with age.Read More Could NMN...
Foods rich in niacin
A clinical trial on the effectiveness of niacin supplementation in Parkinson's disease patients has recently been published in Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience. The link between niacin and Parkinson’s disease Niacin is a form of vitamin B3 that is commonly manufactured as a dietary supplement. Patients with Parkinson’s have considerably lower levels of vitamin B3 compared...
Magnifying glass on DNA
Senescent cells are surprisingly hard to identify, but a recent publication in Tissue and Cell makes the case for using cytoplasmic DNA as a marker of senescence. Why we Age: 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;...
