Read about the latest scientific & technological breakthroughs advancing the human race towards our next evolutionary stage.
Dear IM Reader,
Since our establishment in 2020, we have covered radical ideas & emerging technologies shaping human evolution.
Today, we start a new initiative, "IM Health Roundup." Here, we feature recent scientific & technological developments that highlight our immortalist frontier and the visionaries taking part in what is becoming the most important humanitarian effort of our lifetime.
To Happier, Healthier, & Longer Living Humans!
Scientists Say Brain Implant Let Completely Paralyzed Man Communicate Again
"A 34-year-old paralyzed man who had even lost the ability to move his eyes due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), is able to communicate again through a brain implant..."
Discovery could advance CAR T-cell therapy
"Scientists have found a way to “supercharge” tumour-attacking T cells, which could improve the effectiveness of cell-based cancer immunotherapy and expand the number of cancers it can treat..."
Revel announces $8.4m for repairing-based approaches to reversing aging
"By addressing one of the hallmarks of aging, Revel is strategically positioned to develop therapeutics for multiple diseases of aging including osteoarthritis, kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, skin aging and complications of diabetes..."
Using Gene Expression to Target Senescent Cells
"Most importantly, the researchers focused on genes that are known to cause apoptosis when silenced or inhibited, comparing that list to genes whose downregulation was spurred by ABT-263. Genes with both qualities, the researchers reasoned, would be critical targets in the development of a new senolytic..."
Stanford University uses AI computing to cut DNA sequencing down to five hours
A Stanford University-led research team has set a new Guinness World Record for the fastest DNA sequencing technique using AI computing to accelerate workflow speed..."
Activation of Mondo A protein could protect against aging and age-related disease
"A step toward discovering the fountain of youth could involve protecting against the inevitable accumulation of "senescent" cells associated with aging and age-related diseases. Now, researchers from Japan have identified the MondoA protein as key to protecting against the accumulation of senescent cells..."
Single Protein Can Reverse the Developmental Clock on Adult Brain Cells
“We’re showing that it may be possible to reprogram the fate of this subset of brain cells, giving them the potential to rebuild the damaged brain...”
Clinical Trials Targeting Aging
“The risk of morbidity and mortality increases exponentially with age. Chronic inflammation, accumulation of DNA damage, dysfunctional mitochondria, and increaed senescent cell load are factors contributing to this...”
