Longevity & Immunity

Changing Perceptions

Improving society and health isn’t just about finding the right scientific breakthrough. It’s also about changing perceptions. Sometimes we’re limited in what we think is possible or in who we think can make a meaningful contribution. The push for more open-mindedness is an important one (https://longevity.technology/news/new-longevity-fund-aims-to-change-perceptions-as-much-as-outcomes/). Longevity research still starts from the premise that once […]

Hematopoietic Stem Cells

Cells serve many different roles in the body and can come in many forms. When we talk about longevity, we tend to talk about senescent cells, or those that deteriorate and malfunction as they age. Now researchers are investigating the opposite: cells that last longer than others and have regenerative properties (https://longevity.technology/news/new-insights-into-the-longevity-of-blood-stem-cells/). The cells we’re

What Next?

So, you finally bit the bullet and took an epigenetic test to reveal your biological age. It told you a lot about your body and health. What should you do next? Can you find a way to lower that age score and improve your longevity? (https://longevity.technology/lifestyle/how-to-use-epigenetic-dna-tests-to-improve-your-biological-age-2/). There’s no point in taking a test unless you’re

Cryptocurrency has proved a controversial addition to world finance, but there’s no denying that it’s making its presence felt. There are advantages and disadvantages to using crypto, but for those who are comfortable with this alternative form of money, you want to be able to use it in all relevant areas of your life. For

Mapping The Human Immune System

You might have heard of the Human Genome Project. This massive undertaking spanning decades mapped the full extent of human DNA, making all sorts of interesting discoveries on the way. It was the biggest-ever collaboration of its kind. Now, a new project hopes to do something similar for the human immune system (https://longevity.technology/news/human-immunome-project-unveils-plan-to-map-the-human-immune-system/). It’s difficult

Scaling Up

Plenty of people have clever ideas for innovative pieces of tech. Not all of them can turn them from a theory to a working model, and even if they do get that far, they’re still a long way from making it widely available in homes and institutions around the world. That’s why it’s a big

Making Predictions

Epigenetic testing may be one of the hottest things in longevity science right now, but there are still big questions about its effectiveness, especially compared to other health predictors. A new study by the University of Michigan gives deeper insight into just how well it works (https://longevity.technology/lifestyle/can-an-epigenetic-dna-test-predict-how-well-youll-age/). Predicting future health is an imprecise business but
