Biotech Company Regenerates Tendons, Hair and Skin.

In a pre-clinical study a Canadian regenerative medicine biotech company RepliCel Life Sciences successfully regenerated skin and stimulated hair growth in pigs with burns and abrasions therapy: resulting in scarless healing, growth of hair follicles, complete wound coverage, and the progressive regeneration of all skin layers and tendons. The company focuses on the development of a cell […]

Our Individuality is Not Determined by Our Genes

Put 50 newborn worms in 50 separate containers, and they’ll all start looking for food at roughly the same time. Like members of other species, microscopic C. elegans roundworms tend to act like other individuals their own age. It turns out that the innate system that controls age-appropriate #behavior in a developing worm is not […]

Evolution: What the Fossils Say

Is evolution a fact? How do the claims of creationists stack up against the fossil record and the actual science? Dr. Donald Prothero presents the evidence in a presentation based on his 2007 book (and more recent findings). Prothero is a paleontologist, geologist, author and science educator. He holds a Ph.D in geological sciences from […]

Neurobiological Changes Explain How Mindfulness Meditation Improves Health

Over the past decade, #mindfulness #meditation has been shown to improve a broad range of #health and disease outcomes, such as slowing HIV progression and improving healthy #aging. Yet, little is known about the #brain changes that produce these beneficial health effects. New research from Carnegie Mellon University provides a window into the brain changes […]

It Turns Out, Andromeda is Younger Than Earth… Sort Of – Universe Today

Since ancient times, astronomers have looked up at the night sky and seen the Andromeda galaxy. As the closest galaxy to our own, scientists have been able to observe and scrutinize this giant spiral galaxy for millennia. By the 20th century, astronomers realized that Andromeda was the Milky Way’s sister galaxy and was moving towards […]

My Journey With Cancer and the Hope for the Future

I would like to share a story.  A story about sadness, depression, anger, and frustration.  But most of all this is my personal story about triumphing over the death sentence of #cancer.  I hope this story will give others who went through and are going through hope for the future. My story started about 4 […]

We Read This 800-Page Report on the State of Longevity Research So You Don’t Have To

The longevity field is bustling but still fragmented, and the “silver tsunami” is coming. That is the takeaway of The Science of Longevity, the behemoth first volume of a four-part series offering a bird’s-eye view of the longevity industry in 2017. The report, a joint production of the Biogerontology Research Foundation, Deep Knowledge Life Science, […]

Scientists find key proteins control risk of osteoarthritis during aging

Now, a study from scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) explains why the risk of osteoarthritis increases as we #age and offers a potential avenue for developing new therapies to maintain healthy #joints. The study’s findings suggest that #FOXO proteins are responsible for the maintenance of healthy cells in the #cartilage of our joints. “We discovered that […]

Study Finds that Fasting for 72 Hours Can Regenerate the Entire Immune System – Awareness Act

There has long been controversy surrounding the potential benefits or hazards of fasting. On one hand, supporters of fasting point to the many benefits that they claim fasting provides. This includes promoting weight loss, normalizing insulin sensitivity, lowering triglyceride levels in the body and slowing the signs of aging. There are a number of different […]

Nanorobots Programmed to Destroy a Tumor!

They successfully test a system in mice that fights #cancer by letting the tumor starve without attacking healthy cells. New ways to fight cancer The films Fantastic Voyage (1966) and The Imaginary Chip (1987) imagined what it would be like to put a miniature manned submarine inside a person capable of traveling through the bloodstream to repair the damaged tissues of […]

New technology enables identification of biomarkers for a wide range of diseases

The new, highly sensitive Luminex Multiplex Glycan Array enables the kind of volume needed to establish associations between antibody levels in our blood to these complex sugars, or glycans, and conditions from cancer to autoimmune disease and dementia, they report in the journal Nature Communications. “For many diseases that kill us every day, there still are no good […]

Artificial Intelligence and Emotional Intelligence

People often forget that we designed computers not just based upon strictly rational but emotional purposes as well to help solve complex problems.  For example we would not have designed a calculator if there was no desire to solve mathematical issues.  Humans are emotionally tied to problem solving and thus it helps them formulate decisions.

GROUNDBREAKING SCIENTIFIC RESULTS PROVE THAT THE PROPOSITION OF HUMAN MEDICAL BIOSTASIS HAS POTENTIAL!

A team from 21st Century Medicine has developed a technology that has been independently verified to enable near-perfect, long-term structural preservation of a whole intact mammalian brain. This new breakthrough just won the Brain Preservation Prize – five years after it was launched by the Brain Preservation Foundation (BPF). “One of the, if not THE, most important scientific results in […]

Breakthrough device heals organs with a single touch

Researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Ohio State’s College of Engineering have developed a new technology, Tissue Nanotransfection (TNT), that can generate any cell type of interest for treatment within the patient’s own body. This technology may be used to repair injured tissue or restore function of aging tissue, including organs, blood vessels and nerve cells.

Researchers develop technology to make aged cells younger

Aging. We all face it. Nobody’s immune and we’ve long tried to reverse it, stop it or just even slow it down. While advances have been made, true age-reversal at a cellular level remains difficult to achieve. By taking a different approach, however, researchers at Houston Methodist made a surprising discovery leading to the development of technology with the ability to rejuvenate human cells. And that couldn’t be more important for the small population of children who are aging too quickly – children with progeria.

Russian, US Scientists Team Up to Create World's Most Advanced Quantum Computer

A team of Russian and American scientists at Harvard University has created and tested the world’s first 51 qubit quantum computer. Mikhail Lukin, the co-founder of the Russian Quantum Center, says the new system’s capabilities make it easily the most complex computing machine of its kind.

Electron orbitals may hold key to unifying concept of high-temperature superconductivity

A team of scientists has found evidence for a new type of electron pairing that may broaden the search for new high-temperature superconductors. The findings, described in the journal Science, provide the basis for a unifying description of how radically different “parent” materials-insulating copper-based compounds and metallic iron-based compounds-can develop the ability to carry electrical current with no resistance at strikingly high temperatures.

Anybody wanna see a Ms. Pac-Man kill screen? Okay, so the game doesn’t have a kill screen, but thanks to Microsoft we’re able to see what happens when someone, in this case something, scores one million points. Zero is what happens, as in the game flips over to a nil score. While the end result […]

Two-part system turns stem cells into whatever you want

Whether using embryonic or adult stem cells, coercing these master cells to convert to the desired target cell and reproduce flawlessly is difficult. Now an international team of researchers has a two-part system that can convert the cells to the targets and then remove the remnants of that conversion, leaving only the desired DNA behind to duplicate.

Physicists demonstrate new way to violate local causality

(Phys.org)-For the first time, physicists have experimentally demonstrated the violation of “bilocal causality”-a concept that is related to the more standard local causality, except that it accounts for the precise way in which physical systems are initially generated. The results show that it’s possible to violate local causality in an entirely new and more general way, which could lead to a potential new resource for quantum technologies.
