Anti-ageing technique makes skin cells act 30 years younger
Research from the Babraham Institute has developed a method to 'time jump' human skin cells by 30 years, turning back the ageing clock for cells without losing their specialised function. Work by researchers in the Institute's Epigenetics research programme has been able to partly restore the function of older cells, as well as rejuvenating the molecular measures of biological age.

Scientists have developed a new technique for rejuvenating skin cells. This technique has allowed researchers to rewind the cellular biological clock by around 30 years according to molecular measures, significantly longer than previous reprogramming methods. The partially rejuvenated cells showed signs of behaving more like youthful cells in experiments simulating a skin wound. This research, although in early stages, could eventually have implications for regenerative medicine, especially if it can be replicated in other cell types.
