Aging: Cell coordination breakdown - Researchers use single-cell sequencing to understand how cells age
Scientists have resolved a key question in aging research by showing how mouse immune cells of different ages respond to stimulation. Study demonstrates weaker response of older cells is due to their coordination breaking down, making their response to immune stimulation more variable. Single-cell sequencing technology allows scientists to profile individual cells independently to view cellular activity in high resolution.

The Crazy Plan to Restore a Woman's Fertility—and Defy the Limits of Nature
A gynecologist named Konstantinos Sfakianoudis claimed to have found a way to rejuvenate aging ovaries with a blood treatment typically used for healing wounds. So far, the Sfakianoudis says, the technique has helped nine women nearing menopause who were having difficulty conceiving to get pregnant via in vitro fertilization.
