  • Herbal Supplement Extends Life Span Under Some Environmental Conditions

    April 16, 2015 Abstract Genetic studies indicate that aging is modulated by a great number of genetic pathways. We have used Drosophila longevity and stress assays to test a multipath intervention strategy. To carry out this strategy, we supplemented the flies with herbal extracts (SC100) that are predicted to modulate […]

  • Adaptation, Aging, and Genomic Information

    Aging is not simply an accumulation of damage or inappropriate higher-order signaling. Aging occurs because…

  • Evolution of ageing since Darwin

    Evolutionary biology provides the only cogent, formally developed, and experimentally corroborated theory for biological ageing. In this essay, we supply a brisk run through the highlights of evolutionary research on the biology of ageing.
