Alexandra Stolzing

Senior Lecturer of Regenerative Medicine in the Centre for Biological Engineering in Loughborough University
Solving Ageing by Reprogramming Cells

Alexandra Stolzing's research group is investigating ways to utilize cellular reprogramming technologies in order to re-instate regenerative capacity in aged tissue and in niches of aged stem cells. She studies cellular fusion to roll back the genetic age of a cell, cell conditioning, induced pluripotency, partial cloning and partial reprogramming for cellular rejuvenation therapies or for creating “regeneration trigger cells”. At Lift Basel, Alexandra Stolzing will discuss today's and tomorrow's techniques to effectively deliver us from ageing.

Apart from her role as Senior Lecturer of Regenerative Medicine in the Centre for Biological Engineering in Loughborough University, UK, Alexandra also serves on the Research Advisory Board of the SENS Research Foundation, which fights for a world free of age-related disease, and on the Advisory Board of the Lifeboat Foundation, an organization striving to help humanity survive existential risks such as genetic engineering, nanotechnology, and robotics/AI, as we, they assume, move towards the inevitable Singularity.
