Professor Danica Chen

Danica

Join us for Brunch with Professor Danica Chen, from UC Berkeley.

She has discovered how certain Sirtuin pathways can not only slow aging, but apparently reverse it. These are the same pathways that Resveratrol (from red wine) affected, but this is something new.

The ability of stem cells to self-renew and repair damaged tissues decreases with age, which may underlie much of the aging-associated degeneration in mammals. While decreased self-renewal of normal stem cells leads to compromised tissue maintenance and degenerative diseases, increased self-renewal of cancer stem cells perpetuates the development and progression of cancer. Having your cake and eating it too is a topic of Danica’s research.
