Scientists successfully age human skin cells back 30 years

Scientists Rewind the Clock of Human Skin to Make It Act 30 Years Younger

It may not be the mythical fountain, but it’s a good start. Scientists have engineered human skin cells that reverse 30 years of ageing, returning them to a youthful state based on certain molecular measures.

It’s still early in the research, so don’t get too excited. However, the technique could be a key component of efforts to create rejuvenative medicines that can reverse some of the harmful effects of aging.

The research is notable because the skin cells have been reprogrammed so that they are biologically younger, while still retaining some of their functionality.
