The Smithsonian magazine recently published a fantastic article on our friend and NewOrgan Prize SAB memberAnthony Atala, who has implanted more than two dozen children and young adults with laboratory produced bladders in place of the defective bladders these patients were born with. If clinical tests prove the switches successful, this treatment may become standard for bladder cancer and other conditions aside from bladder birth defects.

Our friends over at Lifestar Institute have published a landmark paper calling for a global collaboration to avert the aging crisis.
For the first time in history, the aged will outnumber the young. Battling with age-related diseases and cost of treatment, global economic disaster looms in the future for all of us if aggressive action isn’t taken now. International investment in aging research will give us the chance to slow or actually reverse the degenerative process of aging to extend healthy, happy lifespan for coming generations.
