The fingerprints of a mighty creator in Proteomics, impact factor >5

Creationism/intelligent design is not really an issue for me as I am a biologist working with mitochondria and stem cells, also a life extension supporter, whose angle on things and projections are based on the recent advancements in science and technology. As far as I know, creationism/ID neither suggests any new experiments or heuristic solutions… Continue reading The fingerprints of a mighty creator in Proteomics, impact factor >5

Michael Rose, evolutionary SENS and aging as a loss of adaptation (slides)

Embedded on the slideshow below 9 slides of Michael Rose‘s presentation called Slowing and then stopping aging on the SENS3 conference on the 9th of September. (Photos made by me with the iPhone.) Rose’s argument was: Aubrey de Grey’s original SENS proposal is based on the non-evolutionary assumption that aging is a process of accumulating… Continue reading Michael Rose, evolutionary SENS and aging as a loss of adaptation (slides)

Mitochondria, the not so hidden superstars of current life sciences

If one thing is for sure, it is mitochondrion’s ascending career in late biology. Mitochondria are the power centers of the eukariotic cell and eventually tell the nucleus what to do next: die or live. Mitos do not exist stably as distinct, individual, autonomous organelles according to new results, but form a highly dynamic semi-tubular… Continue reading Mitochondria, the not so hidden superstars of current life sciences

Why is partial immortalization theoretically and technologically possible?

There are two main arguments supporting our modal statement: i., negative: there is not any particular natural law, neither biological, nor physical which excludes this possibility. ii., positive: we could extrapolate the technological draft of a regeneration treatment of the whole human body from the present results and methods of regenerative medicine. Concerning the first… Continue reading Why is partial immortalization theoretically and technologically possible?
