Stem Cells and Aging: How Cellular Stress Affects Aging

May 7, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Prof. Emmanuelle Passegué How does cellular stress affect lifespan? Does donating blood cause more cellular replication? Reducing lifespan? Come listen to Prof. Emmanuelle Passegué from UCSF share her interesting research on blood stem cells and how they can age us. Prof Passegué earned her PhD degree from the University Paris XI, France and then performed two consecutive postdoctoral fellowships. She first trained as a mouse geneticist with Dr. Erwin Wagner at the Institute for Molecular pathology (IMP) in Vienna, Austria,…

Screening Anti-Aging Compounds

July 9, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The Health Extension Foundation and Entrepreneur's Longevity Club Present: Prof. Simon Melov How can we screen for anti-aging compounds? What is the best way to create a therapy from there? Come listen to Prof. Simon Melov from The Buck share his research on screening anti-aging compounds that have worked well in flies or worms, and find out how well they are doing in mammals, namely, mice. Simon Melov is one of the founding faculty of the Institute, and has been at the Buck since…

Brain circuit function and aging: Can we take back control?

March 18, 2017 @ 5:00 am - 9:00 pm

Dr. Jin Hyung Lee The Lee Lab uses interdisciplinary approaches from biology and engineering to analyze, debug, and manipulate systems-level brain circuits. They seek to understand the connectivity and function of these large-scale networks in order to drive the development of new therapies for neurological diseases. This research finds its basic building blocks in areas ranging from medical imaging and signal processing to genetics and molecular biology. The Lee lab is interested in using new tools at the interface of…

Using Computers to Simulate Entire Cells

June 8, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Health Extension Foundation Presents: Prof. Markus Covert of Stanford   Software is eating the world! To master our biology, and thus aging/disease, we need to understand biology, but we are very far from that goal. Ultimately, we should be able to model our entire physiology on a computer. The closest we've come to that is modeling just one cell. That in itself was an impressive feat for our times. Come meet the man who accomplished this! Prof Markus Covert…

Senescent cells are the hottest topic in aging and biotech. They have been linked to a diverse range of chronic diseases including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, most cancers, dementia, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and frailty. Treatments to clear senescent cells are widely expected to improve health more than most drugs in history. Last Salon, we met Judy Campisi, scientific co-founder of senescence startup Unity Biotech. Now, Scientist and writer Dr. Heike Fuhrmann-Stroissnigg will show us a new view of senescent cells based on…
