Aging of Stem Cells

Continuing the series of charts describing the mechanisms of aging. Here you can download the pdf the chart about aging of stem cells. Take a look at how telomere shortening, oxidative stress and impaired stem cell niche regulation influences our stem cells: reduces the number of dormant stem cells, reduces their engrafting capacities and leads to aberrant, meaning improper, differentiation.

We are Organizing Genetics of Aging and Longevity Conference

I am proud to announce that Science for Life Extension Foundation is one of the organizers of the 2nd international Genetics of Aging and Longevity conference. It is going to be an amazing and actually unprecedented conference focused on genetic mechanisms of aging and longevity. Check out the list of our invited speakers. I can’t wait to hear the prominent researchers sharing their experience in making model animals live longer. By the way, we are proud to have all the longevity-record braking researchers, who extended the lifespan of yeast, nematodes, fruit  flies and mice. You can’t miss this meeting. I encourage you to go ahead and register. It’s the end of April, beautiful spring in Moscow. For those who have never been here before, here’s your chance to kill two birds with one stone – learn a lot about aging and discover one of the most beautiful and dynamic cities in the world.
