Potential new strategy against brain aging and neurodegenerative diseases
Potential new strategy against brain aging and neurodegenerative diseases
Researchers from the Centro de Biología Molecular Severo Ochoa (CBM), the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) and the Centro Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) have described the therapeutic potential of partial neuronal reprogramming in aged mice. The results, published in Communications Biology , show that controlled overexpression of Yamanaka factors in neurons of the central nervous system significantly improves cognitive function in in vivo models, which could be key to combat age-associated neurodegenerative diseases.

Cells that interpret an increase in nutrients accelerate ageing and shorten lifespan
Research shows that cells that interpret an increase in nutrients accelerate ageing and shorten lifespan Cells receive signals of an increase in nutrients, which leads to malfunction and inflammation in organs such as the pancreas, liver or kidneys. This is a discovery from the CNIO team and the Universitat de València, published in Nature Aging .

International scientific collaboration produces comprehensive atlas of human skeletal muscle ageing
International scientific collaboration produces comprehensive atlas of human skeletal muscle ageing
The UV, INCLIVA and the Arnau de Vilanova Hospital in Valencia are participating in an international research project that studies gene expression and epigenetics in skeletal muscle cells at different ages to produce the most complete single-cell atlas of aged human skeletal muscle to date. This study, involving scientific teams from China, the United States and Spain, is published today in the journal Nature and identifies skeletal muscle cells amenable to medical, pharmacological and lifestyle interventions.

An important migratory route of young neurons in the brains of newborns has been discovered
An important migratory route of young neurons in the brains of newborns has been discovered
A study published in Nature, with notable participation from the University of Valencia, has identified a new migratory route of young neurons in the human infant brain. This migratory pathway extends from the lateral ventricle, where these cells are born, to the entorhinal cortex, an area interconnected with the regions where memory and learning are consolidated.

Veterinary researchers develop new method to combat malaria
Veterinary researchers develop new method to combat malaria
Malaria continues to infect more than 200 million people a year, of which a part of them, mostly children, die from the disease. Over the years, methods have been developed against this disease, from simple but efficient mosquito nets to promising vaccines, however, a definitive solution has not yet been found, so research is still necessary.
