A molecule produced during fasting or calorie restriction has anti-aging effects on the vascular system, which could reduce the occurrence and severity of human diseases related to blood vessels, such as cardiovascular disease, according to a study led by Georgia State University. “As people become older, they are more susceptible to disease, like cancer, cardiovascular […]Continue Reading ...
The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) — the nation’s largest interdisciplinary organization devoted to the field of aging — has chosen Karen Fredriksen-Goldsen, PhD, FGSA, of the University of Washington as the 2018 recipient of the Maxwell A. Pollack Award for Productive Aging. This honor, given annually, recognizes instances of practice informed by research and […]Continue Reading ...
Aug 21 2018 Schizophrenia, cannabis use, and alcohol abuse are just several disorders that are related to accelerated brain aging 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 […]Continue Reading ...
August 20, 2018 A new study provides fresh evidence that the decline in the capacity of brain cells to change, called “plasticity,” rather than a decline in total cell number may underlie some of the sensory and cognitive declines associated with normal brain aging. Scientists at MIT’s Picower Institute for Learning and memory show that […]Continue Reading ...
August 13, 2018 Autophagy is a process of destruction and processing of damaged cell components by the cells themselves. It is used by a cell to clean itself of excessive organelles and sometimes for self-execution. This adaptive mechanism supports a healthy phenotype on the cellular level. Autophagy is activated in certain cases of acute kidney […]Continue Reading ...
The C/EBPß-LIP gene regulator is involved in the aging process. If LIP is missing, the lifespan of mice increases and physical fitness is maintained during aging; without a calorie restriction. Credit: Kerstin Wagner / FLI Aging is a major risk factor for physical frailty and the development of age-related diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, […]Continue Reading ...
April 28, 2018 Insilico Medicine, a Baltimore-based company specializing in the application of next-generation artificial intelligence for drug discovery, biomarker development and aging research, announces the presentation of its CEO, Alex Zhavoronkov, at the Pioneers 18 Conference, May 25, 2018, Vienna, Austria. Dr. Zhavoronkov’s session “Artificial Intelligence for Aging Research” will be devoted to the […]Continue Reading ...
April 5, 2018 Conflict, a death in the family, financial hardship and serious medical crises are all associated with accelerated physical aging. In a new study, researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine found that such negative fateful life events — or FLEs — appear to also specifically accelerate aging in […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain What’s the secret to aging well? University of Minnesota Medical School researchers have answered it- on a cellular level. Aging starts in our cells, and those aging cells can hasten cellular senescence, leading to tissue dysfunction and related health impacts. New research involving University of Minnesota Medical School faculty Paul D. […]Continue Reading ...
For decades researchers have worked to shed light on the causes of neurodegenerative disorders, a group of devastating conditions, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, that involve the progressive loss of neurons and nervous system function. In recent years, numerous factors, from genetic mutations to viral infections, have been found to contribute to the development of these […]Continue Reading ...
August 17, 2018 The MDI Biological Laboratory has announced that Life Biosciences, a biotech company co-founded by David Sinclair, Ph.D., a leading researcher on aging and age-related diseases, has contributed $100,000 to fund its biomedical innovation course on aging. Other sponsors of the recent course, Comparative and Experimental Approaches to Aging Biology Research, included the […]Continue Reading ...
June 28, 2018 A study led by Luísa Lopes, Group Leader at Instituto de Medicina Molecular João Lobo Antunes (iMM; Portugal) and published today in the prestigious journal Molecular Psychiatry, describes a new mechanism involved in memory loss associated with aging. The work developed over 3 years by a team of Portuguese, French and German […]Continue Reading ...
May 11, 2018 A basic discovery of how the cellular functions are connected to control aging is presented in the journal Cell Metabolism. The study shows that an increasingly deteriorating communication between the cells’ organelles is an important cause of aging. The discovery is the result of a collaboration between five research groups at the […]Continue Reading ...
April 11, 2018 For 93-year-old Joseph Brown, the clearest sign of aging was his inability the other day to remember he had to have his pants unzipped to pull them on. For 95-year-old Caroline Mayer, it was deciding at age 80 to put away her skis, after two hip replacements. And for 56-year-old Dr. Thomas […]Continue Reading ...
April 6, 2018 Insilico Medicine, a Baltimore-based next-generation artificial intelligence company specializing in the application of deep learning for drug discovery, biomarker development and aging research, is pleased to announce the presentation of its Director of Drug Discovery, Dr. Ivan Ozerov, at the 24th Clinical Applications for Age Management Medicine Conference, April 27, 2018, organized […]Continue Reading ...
