Restricted diet delays accelerated ageing and genomic stress in DNA-repair-deficient mice

Nature   | August 2016 | Abstract Mice deficient in the DNA excision-repair gene Ercc1 (Ercc1∆/−) show numerous accelerated ageing features that limit their lifespan to 4-6 months1, 2, 3, 4. They also exhibit a ‘survival response’, which suppresses growth and enhances cellular maintenance. Such a response resembles the anti-ageing response induced by dietary [...]

Healthy Ageing Seminar

Augustus 30-31 - 2016 | Gothenburg, Sweden | Our life expectancy is increasing. But we don’t just want to live long – we also want to maintain our health. As the ageing population rapidly becomes one of our biggest challenges, research on ageing grows into a hot and important field. We would therefore like to welcome [...]

Ectopic miR-125a Expression Induces Long-Term Repopulating Stem Cell Capacity in Mouse and Human Hematopoietic Progenitors  

Cell | September 2016| Summary Umbilical cord blood (CB) is a convenient and broadly used source of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) for allogeneic stem cell transplantation. However, limiting numbers of HSCs remain a major constraint for its clinical application. Although one feasible option would be to expand HSCs to improve therapeutic outcome, available protocols [...]
