Sirtuin 6 : Summary Of Key Points of Professor Cohen Interview | Modern Healthspan

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension, media & arts

There is a SIRT6 activator on the market but it is very expensive at a few hundred dollars.


We have had requests for a summary of the interview with Prof Cohen. This video is a summary of the key points from the interviews. As I note in the introduction, this is my interpretation of what Prof Cohen said, please check the original interviews if you have any questions. And please do feel free to let me know if you think I got something wrong!

Longevity Research is an Economic Necessity

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

It is vital to recognize the immediate economic importance of i nvesting in longevity and healthy-aging sciences.

Aging itself is a complex series of at least 300 biological processes involving more than 10% of our genetic makeup. It follows that methods to combat these effects must be a combination of sciences, from biotech to biophysics and pharmaceuticals. There is no single “silver bullet” solution.

Aging, along with the physical and mental decay that accompanies it, is still widely regarded as a natural and inevitable thing. It is not, it is a degenerative disease in which the physical integrity and structure of our cells decay each time they divide to replace old ones or as part of any healing process.

2022 Conference

Posted by in categories: cryonics, life extension

This year, the Alcor Life Extension Foundation is celebrating its 50th year. To mark the occasion, we are holding a conference on June 3–5, 2022, at the Scottsdale Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.


The conference itself will be Alcor’s first major in-person gathering in seven years, so we’re going to “go big.” We expect members, prospective members, and others interested in life extension and the far future to turn out enthusiastically. We hope not only that our attendees will enjoy hearing from and interacting with you, but also that you may find the experience enjoyable. There is no organization quite like Alcor, after all, and very few opportunities to explore cryonics and its implications for society now and in the far future.

The long and gruesome history of people trying to live forever

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Estimates put this industry’s worth at a staggering $610 billion by 2025. 😳


The Renaissance philosopher Montaigne quipped that “death has us by the scruff of the neck at every moment.” He could have added: until, finally, it strangles us. But what if we knew how to escape death’s chokehold? What if we could avoid death and live forever?

Immortality might seem like the stuff of science fiction, yet it’s increasingly becoming the focus of real science. In 2013, Google launched Calico, a biotech firm whose objective is to “solve” death. PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, meanwhile, has pledged to “fight” death. And last year, it was reported Amazon chairman Jeff Bezos had invested in Altos Labs, a company that plans to “rejuvenate” cells in order to “reverse disease.” (Bezos owns The Washington Post.)

Dr Katcher’s E5 Experiment May 2022 Update | Review

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

Not an amazing update. All female rats are not getting the results the previous group of males got. To my knowledge human trials are still actively being set up for late this year.


In this video we report on the May 2022 update from Dr. Katcher’s experiment with E5, where he is testing to see how long the rats will stay alive if they are given an E5 injection every 90 days.

YouthBio CEO: The time is right to develop epigenetic reprogramming therapies

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

Earlier this month, we brought you the news that epigenetic reprogramming startup YouthBio Therapeutics had emerged from stealth. The company shed some light on its plans to develop epigenetic reprogramming therapies for age-related diseases by rejuvenating certain cells in our bodies. YouthBio aims to achieve this rejuvenation by developing gene therapies that enable partial cellular reprogramming – an area of longevity science that is now attracting significant commercial interest.

Longevity. Technology: Cellular reprogramming refers to the process of returning adult cells to a “pluripotent” state: blank, embryonic-like cells that can become any cell in the body. This reprogramming can be achieved using techniques based on the discovery of Yamanaka factors.
