A new CRISPR method allows researchers to silence most genes in the human genome and then reverse the changes.
The researchers screened more than 1,000 people, less than 5 percent of whom qualified as bona-fide super-agers.
Cognitive decline due to ageing can be reversed in mice – here’s what the new study means for humans
This offers hope that the cognitive impairment associated with growing older is a transient state we can potentially fix.
Researchers have identified an anti-ageing protein which controls protein metabolism, a process linked to ageing and disease.
A team at Harvard has identified molecules that restore protective caps on the tips of our chromosomes that regulate cells ageing.
Is life extension theoretically and technologically possible? Is it desirable for the individual and society? What actions should we take?
Like insulin pumps and cardiac pacemakers, the medical implants of the future will go where they are needed, on or inside the body.
The first big problem is death. Roughly 90 percent of everybody who has been alive has died by now.
It has recently been suggested that humans could live to 150 by 2020 simply by taking a certain supplement.
A desirable option would be to use CRISPR gene editing to essentially cut out the unwanted gene. There are, however, many challenges ahead.
