Written by Nicholi Avery Edited by Carla Parsons A clinical-grade retinal implant made of human #embryonic stem cell (#hESC)–derived RPE grown on a synthetic substrate has been developed by Kashani and team. The progressive binding disease that causes loss of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) of the eye is known as #Non-neovascular age-related macular degeneration […]
A neural circuit mechanism involved in preserving the specificity of memories has been identified by investigators from the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Center for Regenerative Medicine and the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI). They also identified a genetic “switch” that can slow down #memory generalization — the loss of specific details over time that occurs […]
Enzymes play an important role in cognitive function. Enzymes are biological catalysts. They’re responsible for accelerating chemical reactions. What role do enzymes play in #aging and cognitive function? According to new research in laboratory mice by UC San Francisco scientists have discovered that loss of an #enzyme that modifies gene activity to promote brain regeneration […]
Over the past decade, #mindfulness #meditation has been shown to improve a broad range of #health and disease outcomes, such as slowing HIV progression and improving healthy #aging. Yet, little is known about the #brain changes that produce these beneficial health effects. New research from Carnegie Mellon University provides a window into the brain changes […]
Now, a study from scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) explains why the risk of osteoarthritis increases as we #age and offers a potential avenue for developing new therapies to maintain healthy #joints. The study’s findings suggest that #FOXO proteins are responsible for the maintenance of healthy cells in the #cartilage of our joints. “We discovered that […]
Increased levels of one protein in old blood may contribute to its aging effects on the brain, a mouse study suggests.
The genes of an Indiana Amish community may host a secret humans have pursued for much of living memory: the anti-aging key to longer and healthier lives.
An anti-aging strategy that works in mice is about to be tested in humans
Instead of fearing AI, we should use it to extend our lives.
Modern science is bringing us ever closer to a day when aging is no longer a concern. However, with our increasing life-spans come challenges and questions we must be prepared to face.
These specialized genes could help us prevent aging.
Yeast has long been used by researchers as a model organisms; it is inexpensive and easy to work with and has many genes and cellular functions with a high

Insilico Medicine launched aging.AI, a system allowing users to guess their age and gender by entering the results of their blood test.
Author: Adam Alonzi Aging, inflammation, cancer, and cellular senescence are all intimately interconnected. Deciphering the nature of each thread is a tremendous task, but must be done if preventative and geriatric medicine ever hope to advance. A one dimensional analysis simply will not suffice. Without a strong understanding of the genetic, epigenetic, intercellular, and intracellular […]
In the most complete tally yet, scientists have identified nearly 1,500 genes that are connected to how we age
Forever Healthy’s mission is to enable people to vastly extend their healthy lifespan and be part of the first generation to cure aging.
Motherboard paid a visit to Japan to visit a researcher who is studying the only known animal that has figured out how to defeat death.
British Columbia, the westernmost province of Canada that is home to over 4 million people, has a law on the books that prohibits the marketing or sale o…
Cambridge researcher Aubrey de Grey argues that aging is merely a disease — and a curable one at that. Humans age in seven basic ways, he says, all of which can be averted.
