“Time Jump” by 30 Years: Old Skins Cells Reprogrammed To Regain Youthful Function

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics, life extension

Findings could lead to targeted approach for treating aging.

Research from the Babraham Institute has developed a method to ‘time jump’ human skin cells by 30 years, turning back the aging clock for cells without losing their specialized function. Work by researchers in the Institute’s Epigenetics research program has been able to partly restore the function of older cells, as well as rejuvenating the molecular measures of biological age. The research is published today (April 7, 2022) in the journal eLife and whilst at an early stage of exploration, it could revolutionize regenerative medicine.

What is regenerative medicine?
