For the first time, the enzymes which trigger the regulation of telomerase have been identified by researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine.
Telome Health, Inc. (THINC), a biotechnology firm based in Menlo Park, CA has launched the beginning phase of a research study that will measure and analyze age-based average telomere lengths of Bay Area residents.
We created agemarker.com first and foremost as a clearinghouse for credible information around healthy aging and telomere science.
But we aspire to be more than that—we want to support you as part of a community of people taking concrete steps to improve our health now, and our prospects for healthy aging in the future.
According to research done by a team at the Department of Medical Bioscience in Umeå University in Sweden, people who exhibit signs of ongoing depression and chronic stress possess shorter telomeres in their white blood cells, which have been previously shown to accelerate the aging process in an individual.
Mark Haussman and a team of researchers at Bucknell University have recently discovered that high prenatal stress levels during fetal development in chickens leaves offspring at a much greater risk for having oxidative damage, hyperactive stress responses, premature aging, and shorter telomere lengths later in life.
