A scientific strategy that explores therapeutic targets based on the biology of aging is gaining ground as an effective approach to prevent and treat Alzheimer’s disease, according to research published in the December 7, 2018 online issue of Neurology®. A comprehensive review of the clinical trial landscape, including current agents being studied for the prevention […]Continue Reading ...
Insilico Medicine, one of the leaders in artificial intelligence for drug discovery, biomarker development, digital medicine, and aging research announced today the publication of its recent paper titled “Artificial Intelligence for Aging and Longevity Research: Recent Advances and Perspectives” in Ageing Research Reviews, one of the highest-impact journals in the field. The paper introduces recent […]Continue Reading ...
Aging is the most important single factor behind chronic diseases and death. As “silver tsunami” approaches, healthcare and social protection systems face the looming crisis. By 2050, the global population of older persons is projected to more than double its size in 2015. New article published in Frontiers in Genetics by MIPT scientist Peter Fedichev […]Continue Reading ...
There are many factors that influence the aging process. Unlocking these factors can lead to valuable insights into what impacts the condition and health of the human body and reveal how to minimize these impacts. Researchers from Haut.AI, a machine vision and artificial intelligence for skin care company, in collaboration with Insilico Medicine have developed […]Continue Reading ...
Old age is the greatest risk factor for many diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and cancer. Geroprotectors are a recently identified class of anti-aging compounds. New Salk research has now identified a unique subclass of these compounds, dubbed geroneuroprotectors (GNPs), which are AD drug candidates and slow the aging process in mice. “The argument for […]Continue Reading ...
“Healthy aging” sounds like a priority we all can share, but for geriatrics healthcare professionals–the doctors, nurses, pharmacists, physicians assistants, social workers, and many others dedicated to the care we need as we age–that term represents something specific, and something worth defining. Led by Paul Mulhausen, MD, MHS, FACP, AGSF, colleagues from the American Geriatrics […]Continue Reading ...
Columbia neuroscientists show how a bone hormone acts in the brain of mice to improve memory, and how aging sabotages the process.Continue Reading ...
The aging of males and females is influenced by how they choose to invest their available energy, according to a study of fruit flies carried out at Linköping University, Sweden. The results, published in The American Naturalist, support the idea that differences in strategy between the sexes to maximise the number of offspring contribute to […]Continue Reading ...

Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology have made an important discovery about how neurons become damaged and unable to function properly as people age. Andrii Vodolazhskyi | Shutterstock One outcome of the aging process is that neurons become damaged by free radicals, a process referred to as oxidative stress. The MIT researchers have now found […]Continue Reading ...
Cancer treatments are suspected to accelerate certain aging processes in the body. A new study has found that indicators of such biological aging correlate with declines in cognitive function in women who had undergone breast cancer treatment several years earlier. Published early online in CANCER, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society, the findings […]Continue Reading ...
Scientists from Germany and abroad will be meeting in Magdeburg from 27 to 29 November 2018 to discuss latest research on spatial cognition in aging and neurodegeneration. The symposium is hosted by the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE). “This unique interdisciplinary conference will gather leading experts from different disciplines from Europe and overseas. We […]Continue Reading ...
Successful aging can be the norm, says UCLA psychology professor Alan Castel in his new book, “Better with Age: The Psychology of Successful Aging” (Oxford University Press). Castel sees many inspiring role models of aging. French Impressionist Claude Monet, he notes, began his beloved water lily paintings at age 73. Castel cites hundreds of research […]Continue Reading ...
The United States is an aging society, where one in five people will be 65 or older by 2035. While bioethics scholarship on aging has historically concerned itself with issues at the end of life and the medical care of patients with chronic or progressive conditions, it is time for bioethics to look at the […]Continue Reading ...
Drivers of brain aging. Credit: Daniel G. Amen In the largest known brain imaging study, scientists from Amen Clinics (Costa Mesa, CA), Google, John’s Hopkins University, University of California, Los Angeles and the University of California, San Francisco evaluated 62,454 brain SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography) scans of more than 30,000 individuals from 9 […]Continue Reading ...
