About Reason .

Long-time advocate for rejuvenation biotechnology and director of the aging research website Fight Aging. Reason is also the founder of Repair Biotechnologies,  a new venture that will focus on the development of gene therapies relevant to human rejuvenation. Their initial focus is on the development of gene therapies to regenerate the thymus, which has the potential to restore production of T cells in older individuals, or may help patients suffering from immunodeficiency.

Fight Aging!
January 22, 2021
For a few years now, I've suggested areas of opportunity in rejuvenation biotechnology in which either (a) it seems quite viable to start a company, given what I've seen going on in industry and academia, or (b) it would be very helpful should someone step up with an approach that works, given the need for...
Fight Aging!
January 22, 2021
There are a great many ways to influence cellular metabolism to modestly slow the pace of aging, but few of them are of lll that much interest from a practical point of view, as a basis for therapies that might meaningfully extend human life spans. If an approach involves improvements in mitochondrial function and less...
Supporting Evidence for the Hypothesis that NAD+ Upregulation Increases Cancer Risk
January 22, 2021
NAD+ levels in the mitochondria decline with age, and this is a proximate cause of reduced mitochondrial function. Approaches to increasing levels of NAD+ in aging cells have been shown to improve metabolism and mitochondrial function in mice, but the evidence is mixed in humans for there to be any meaningful effect on age-related conditions....
Fight Aging!
January 21, 2021
The mainstream of the scientific community has for decade after decade followed an entirely incorrect strategy in the matter of aging, and it was only comparatively recently that this state of affairs was changed for the better by the advocacy of groups like the SENS Research Foundation, Methuselah Foundation, and their allies, alongside advances in...
Mitochondrial Aging as a Contributing Cause of Sarcopenia
January 21, 2021
Mitochondria are the power plants of the cell, producing adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to power cellular processes. When mitochondrial function declines all cell functions are negatively affected as a consequence. Many age-related conditions clearly involve mitochondrial dysfunction, particularly in the most energy-hungry tissues, the muscles and the brain.Mitochondriaadenosine triphosphate (ATP)mitochondrial dysfunctionIn addition to damage to the...
