2013 was a momentous year. It culminated in the development of a paper put together by a group of scientists charged with reviewing all the literature on ageing and coming up with what they called the Nine Hallmarks of Ageing. This paper galvanised the scientific community and opened up new areas of research and the generation of emerging theories on how we age.
July was an exciting month in the scientific world of anti-ageing and longevity. A new discovery! A new understanding! Another step towards finding new disease treatments and novel medicines that could vastly improve our healthspan and lifespan.
