Why We Age—And How We Can Stop It

Human cells have death programmed into them. Since our cells have expiration dates, we in turn have expiration dates. Hank Green hates death, so he helps us understand the process of aging, informs us of how scientists are studying ways to prevent it, and brings us the exciting news of current research in longevity...for mice.

  • Epigenome: The Symphony in Your Cells

    Almost every cell in your body has the same DNA sequence. So how come a heart cell is different from a brain cell? Cells use their DNA code in different ways, depending on their jobs. Just like orchestras can perform one piece of music in many different ways. 

  • Microscope Technique Brings Big Resolution at Low Temperatures

    New advances in electron microscopy reveal molecular structures at resolutions useful for drug discovery.

  • Rat Tissue Decellularization

    Over a period of 52 hours, infusion of a detergent solution removes cells from a rat forelimb, leaving behind the cell-free matrix scaffolding onto which new tissues can be regenerated. For more on regenerative medicine, read this featured article from GEN's June 15 issue. 

  • Human Organs-On-Chips

    Wyss Human Organs-On-Chips will be on display at The Museum of Modern Art in New York until January 2016. This video shows how the design of the chips allow them to emulate organ–level functions.

  • Johns Hopkins Researchers Find Caffeine Enhances Memory

    For many people, caffeine consumption is the energy boost of choice to wake up or stay up. But researchers at the Johns Hopkins University have found another use for the stimulant: memory enhancer.

  • Detecting Rare Cancer Cells with Sound Waves

    A team of engineers from MIT, Penn State University, and Carnegie Mellon University is developing a novel way to isolate rare circulating tumor cells using sound waves to separate them from blood cells.

  • 3D Heart Simulation

    Researchers from the University of Tokyo built a 3D model of the human heart to help predict whether new drugs will cause irregular heartbeats. 

  • DNA: Past to Present

    In celebration of DNA Day on April 25, GEN presents this video timeline spanning 150 years of the history of DNA.

  • Exploring the PI3K/AKT/mTOR Pathway

    Novartis Oncology is investigating the PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway to understand and treat advanced breast cancer.

  • Improving Brain Plasticity

    The Shatz Lab at Stanford developed a decoy drug that allowed mice to form new connections as adults, leading to findings that could eventually help people recover from stroke, forms of blindness and Alzheimer's disease.
