Changes in gut microbiome associated with brain damage in infants

In a new study, published in Cell Host & Microbe, researchers identified changes in the gut microbiome that are associated […]

Could Treating Your Microbiome Trigger Healthy Ageing?

The gut microbiome is a significant regulator of the immune system and brain health. As we age, we typically experience […]

Novel telomerase regulator may be involved in ageing and cancer

Researchers have discovered a repetitive and highly variable DNA sequence that regulates telomerase activity, illuminating a genetic and molecular basis […]

Gene therapy reverses age-related memory impairment

Researchers have developed a new strategy to rescue age-related memory impairment in mice with gene therapy, which involves restoring the […]

Using metagenomics to analyse bacteria in the human gut microbiome

Researchers have recently used metagenomics to investigate the evolution and persistence of bacteria in the human gut microbiome. The human […]

Ageing and loss of resilience

Researchers have presented results from a recent study exploring associations between ageing and the loss of the ability to recover […]

Cancer cells take advantage of DNA’s 3D structure

Researchers have explored how cancer cells re-organise the 3D structure of their DNA to enhance oncogene activity. Cancer cells In […]

Why people aged 105 and over live longer

Using whole-genome sequencing, researchers have explored the link between genetic variation and extreme longevity in people aged 105 and over. […]
