Seeking a fountain of youth

Posted: Jan 12, 2009 | 2 min 10 sec

The same principles that a Biodesign Institute research team has applied to remove harmful contaminants from the environment may one day allow people to clean up the gunk from their bodies and reverse the effects of aging.

The Biodesign Institute, along with partner, the Methuselah Foundation, is working to vanquish age-related disease by making old cells feel younger.

John Schloendorn, a Molecular and Cellular Biology Ph.D. student who works in the lab of Dr. Bruce Rittmann, director of the Biodesign Institute’s Center for Environmental Biotechnology, says the process is part of creating sustainable therapies for the body.
