Beautiful and Immortal
PresaDiretta questions one of the most powerful myths of contemporary society, eternal youth. Can you be young forever? In the United States, they are not only convinced, but are preparing to break the most extreme of scientific limits: death. There is, in fact, who is preparing to become immortal. American technology giants are investing a river of money on anti-aging research, the dream of eternity is the business of the future. Ultimately, for the foremost, for the optimists convinced that sooner or later the way to be reported in life even after death someone will find it, there are those who thought of hibernation.
Now Silicon Valley techies think they can live for ever (Free with registration)
After decades of quiet toil in laboratories, novel drugs are emerging that could rewrite the rules of old age, how we define long life and, ultimately, how we organise as a society.
Inside Silicon Valley’s quest to defeat ageing
The Sunday Times’ tech correspondent Danny Fortson talks to the scientists and executives pledging to redefine life as we know it about why we may be finally on the cusp of an age revolution, taking the pain out of being old, the wonder drugs already in circulation, on whether we are playing god, the rejuvenating effects of young blood, freezing your stem cells, the merging of artificial intelligence and medicine, and what the future of ageing looks like.
How to encourage muscle stem cells to replace missing muscle? A familiar home, a few friends and some healthy exercise
Major traumatic events such as landmine explosions can rip away whole chunks of tissue and make it difficult or impossible to ever regain function. In the face of such complete devastation, even muscle stem cells falter. Now Stanford neurologist Thomas Rando, MD, PhD, and former postdoctoral scholar Marco Quarta, PhD, have outlined a three-part approach that, at least in mice, helps muscle stem cells grow new muscle tissue.
