Science of Longevity: Breakthroughs and Discoveries Extending Life.

Good Morning,

Welcome to this week’s exploration into the world of longevity science, where the quest to unlock the secrets of aging takes center stage.

From the nuanced discussions on defining the very essence of longevity to Dior’s groundbreaking foray into the arena of reverse aging, and a riveting session at the Milken Institute poised to reveal cutting-edge insights on extending and enhancing life, this digest promises to be a treasure trove of knowledge. Through these narratives, we unravel the complexities, aspirations, and groundbreaking strides that define the frontiers of aging research.

Let’s unveil time’s passage…


What Actually is Aging? (PNAS)

The aging research sector stands on the brink of transformative discovery, yet a glaring challenge persists: What really is aging? Jesse R. Poganik and Vadim N. Gladyshev from Harvard highlight the pressing need for a collective consensus on the essence and nature of aging. While aging is observed as a combination of functional decline, damage accumulation, loss of homeostasis, and more, the authors argue that one fundamental aspect might drive all others. Analogous to how “mutations” underlie the Hallmarks of Cancer, aging too might have a singular essence.

Understanding both the essence and the intricate nature of aging is crucial for targeting the aging process effectively. As research intensifies, establishing clear definitions and concepts will not only streamline scientific endeavors but also ensure credible communication about aging to society at large. Like any burgeoning field, clarity at its foundation will dictate its future successes and impacts.

Dior Enter The Longevity Science Field (BeautyNews)

Dior has boldly stepped into the realm of reverse aging by unveiling its International Reverse Aging Scientific Advisory Board (RASAB) at the Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Medicine World Congress in Monaco. Aiming to delve deeper into skin rejuvenation mechanisms, this pioneering board amalgamates 18 top-notch scientists, including world-leading aging researchers and experts from Dior Science Research. Their mission? Collaborate with Maison Dior’s researchers on skin aging challenges and keep the public updated on breakthroughs.

Leveraging progress made since 2000 in understanding the 12 crucial hallmarks of aging, Dior aims to target both visible skin aging and its root causes. They’re not just focusing on scientific facets; the board also encompasses experts analyzing reverse aging’s societal impacts and the potential of floral ingredients in skin rejuvenation. Dior, it seems, is poised to redefine skincare’s future.

A Revolution in Longevity Science (Milken Institute)

At the Milken Institute’s Future of Health Summit, an intriguing session on longevity science is set to capture attention. As lifespans lengthen, with the number of centenarians projected to grow eightfold by 2050, the quest for healthy aging intensifies. Beyond just the biology, the psychology of aging is also under the lens.

With an objective to combat age-related ailments like dementia, this video session is steered by NBC’s Anne Thompson. The panel boasts of luminaries from the Institute for Aging Research, University of Arizona’s Brain Science Center, McKinsey Health Institute, Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation, and Preventive Medicine Research Institute. Join them as they unveil insights and methodologies that promise not just extended, but enhanced lives.


As we wrap up this week’s deep dive into the ever-evolving realm of longevity science, several poignant musings arise. We’ve traversed the philosophical ponderings on the essence of aging, witnessed an iconic fashion powerhouse like Dior venture into reverse aging, and glimpsed at a promising future discourse at the Milken Institute. The multifaceted journey into the annals of aging research reminds us of its vast impact – on our skin, our psyche, and our societal fabric.

Modern science is incredible.
