Stem Cell Shots Reverse Aging
By CARRIE GANN, ABC News Medical Unit
Injecting younger cells into aging bodies could help people live longer -- and stronger -- at least according to new research performed on mice.
Scientists said the research, published today in the journal Nature Communications, offered provocative new clues about the potential to treat aging and ailing cells, but it doesn't mean they've uncovered a new fountain of youth.
Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center genetically altered mice to make them age faster, making them old and weak in a span of 17 days. The scientists then injected the mice with stem cell-like cells taken from the muscle of young, healthy mice.
Invitation to the Annual General Meeting
of the Cryonics Institute
and Immortalist Society
3 P.M. Saturday, September 12th, 2015
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Cryonics Institute will be held at 3PM on Saturday, September 12th, 2015 at the CI facility, 24355 Sorrentino Court, Clinton Township, Michigan 48035. The AGM of the Immortalist Society will be held after the CI AGM on the same day at the same location. The two meetings generally last most of the afternoon. A buffet dinner and social follow. The CI facility will be open to guests and visitors one hour before the meeting begins.
Meetings offer an excellent opportunity to see the facility, to meet other members, to get a sense of the status of the Cryonics Institute and Immortalist Society and to see Officers, Directors and Staff. For those who come a day early, an informal dinner will be held on Saturday evening at a local restaurant.
Agenda items for the CI AGM will include President’s Report, Treasurer’s Report, and Investment report as well as business issues that arise. The winners of the CI Board of Director election will be announced. There will be tours of the CI Facility. There is no charge for the buffet dinner, but we need to know how much food to order.
