Pinpointing the molecular mechanisms of ageing

Although each and every one of us goes through it, ageing is a poorly understood process. Researchers have used a biomarker called the epigenetic clock to identify a gene that is closely linked to ageing in humans. The study, ...

Heterophase nanostructures contributing to efficient catalysis

Selective catalysis plays a key role in various applications, such as the chemical industry and oil refining, hence, developing catalysts with high efficiency and excellent chemoselectivity has become a research hotspot. ...

What can worms tell us about human aging?

What can worms tell us about human ageing? A lot more than you'd think; as research led by the Babraham Institute but involving researchers from multiple disciplines drawn together from across the world has shown. In a cluster ...

Researchers uncover intracellular longevity pathway

The search for clues on how to live healthier, longer lives has led researchers at Baylor College of Medicine to look inside the cells of the worm Caenorhabditis elegans. The researchers report in the journal Developmental ...

Tissue chips rocket to International Space Station

When traveling in space, astronauts experience physiological changes normally associated with aging, such as bone loss, muscle deterioration and altered immune systems. When the astronauts return to Earth, the changes often ...
