AI and the quest for immortality — are we defeating death?

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, education, life extension, robotics/AI

Can artificial intelligence, or AI, make it possible for us to live forever? Or at least, be preserved for posterity? What are the current developments in the fields of artificial intelligence and biotechnology?

Will humanity exist without biological bodies, in the near future? Could humans and AI merge into one being? This documentary explores these questions, and more.

Researchers identify link between gut bacteria and pre-clinical autoimmunity and aging in rheumatoid arthritis

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, food, life extension

While the bacteria in the intestine are helpful for digesting food and fighting infections, they have long been suspected to play an essential role in triggering rheumatoid arthritis. This chronic inflammatory disorder affects the joints.

Mayo Clinic researchers have discovered a link between an abundance of specific gut bacteria and the triggering of an immune response against a person’s tissue. They also found that this happens even before the clinical symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis appear. They published their findings from the study in Science Advances.

“As we age, our gut bacteria and their byproducts change, which impacts our ,” says senior author Veena Taneja, Ph.D., a Mayo Clinic immunologist. There is a known link between imbalances in gut bacteria, aging, and rheumatoid arthritis, but it is challenging to prove this connection in humans. “This research sheds light on the complex relationship between gut microbiota and rheumatoid arthritis.”

Beyond the secretome: targeting age-related immune decline

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

US biotech Immunis has developed an “immunomodulatory secretome” technology targeting age-related immune decline. With preclinical studies showing benefit in muscular atrophy, metabolic and vascular function, tissue inflammation, and immune cell function in a range of age-related disease indications, the Californian company is currently engaged in its first in-human clinical trial for muscle atrophy.

Longevity. Technology: The secretome refers to the substances that are secreted (released) by cells – exosomes, micro-vesicles, proteins, growth factors, hormones, cytokines, and other substances. The secretome is known to play a role in helping repair and regenerate our bodies, but these beneficial secreted factors decline with age. Immunis has developed a novel method to isolate secreted cellular factors that benefit immune system development, modulation, and health – and replenish them. To find out more about the company and its technology, we spoke to its Chairman, Dr Hans Keirstead.

Keirstead is a renowned stem cell expert and serial entrepreneur, founding and successfully exiting several biotech companies in the stem cell space. Back in the early days of the field, he became the first neuroscientist in the world to work with human stem cells.

Maria Entraigues Abramson’s abbreviated presentation @RAADfest 2023

Posted by in category: life extension

Here’s a quick look at Maria Entraigues Abramson’s presentation at RAADfest 2023 in California. Our Director of Develpoment gives an overview of SRF’s work and misison. You can watch the full presentation by renting the video program for the full event from the Coalition for Radical Life Extension here: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/raadfest2023/

In her full presentation, she highlights that adopting a better lifestyle to enhance our health is always a good idea and we should all do this. She personally advocates for everyone to utilize all scientifically supported resources to achieve optimized health. However, she reminds the audience that the mission of SRF is not about lifestyle changes but to transform the aging process completely, aiming to significantly extend our healthspan by repairing our bodies at a cellular level. SRF’s damage-repair approach will lead to a much longer and healthier lifespan—a feat not yet accomplished, regardless of the excellent care we may take of ourselves through lifestyle changes, supplement intake, etc.

How humans will reach beyond biological bodies

Posted by in categories: biological, life extension, robotics/AI

This video discusses what it would mean to live forever or to have a greatly expanded lifespan. Would we inevitably grow bored with existence? Why do we even want to live longer?

We also discuss the philosophy of the Ship of Theseus as it applies to mind upload or body transfer. If you transfer your mind to a new body, are you still the same person? We conclude that the answer is yes if and only if you experience no discontinuities in consciousness.

Pig plasma to live longer?

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, education, life extension, nanotechnology

A quickie about E5.

Hello, i am back! Blood, sweat and tears have been shed these past months of absence. But enough sweating was done during the summer, tears have already been shed, so that just leaves me with blood. And whether taking a part of blood (plasma) and injecting it into old animals is enough for rejuvenation. That’s right, many of you may remember, earlier this year i made a video on the oldest living rat.- and now we have some updates: in particular, (i) what actually were the rats given, and (ii) what changes were seen, showing both some DNAm and glycan age data.

WSU students create database to accelerate skin science

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension, science

A new public database built from the ground up by Washington State University undergraduates looks to expedite scientific understanding of how skin heals.

The website — skinregeneration.org — was created for researchers but allows anyone to cross-compare information on more than 33,000 genes from different species as they relate to skin development, wound repair, and regeneration. Ultimately, it could help scientists reprogram adult skin for regeneration during wound healing and to inhibit the aging process.

“Historically, one of the major mechanisms scientists communicated through was with physical papers published in journals. A new concept of how to output knowledge is to create webtools in association with online manuscripts. For example, webtools that allow for interacting with large genomic datasets that have so much knowledge that cannot fit into a single paper. You can just interact with the data on any device and at any time you want,” said Ryan Driskell, head of WSU’s Fibroblast and Skin Regeneration Laboratory.
