Mikhail Blagosklonny is a passionate scientist who wanted to be credited as the first man to discover the key to immortal life. Dr. Mikhail Blagosklonny is a graduate of the First Pavlov State Medical University of St. Petersburg, where he earned his MD and PhD titles. He became an oncology professor at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute, and this is where his fascination with immortal life began. As a professor teaching about the nature of cancers, he discovered that a substance called rapamycin produces two centric models that can be used to rejuvenate the cells and strengthen the body’s immunity. He initially thought that it can be used to “cure” aging, and so he decided to work on a number of researches to discover the potential of rapamycin.Ancient civilizations have myths and legends about gods, goddesses and supernatural humans bearing the ability to live forever. Dr. Mikhail Blagosklonny is fascinated by these stories, and hopes to bring it into reality. However, he is aware of the possible consequences of his action, and he is very cautious about the possible abuse of the research that he is working on. He wanted to make sure that if ever the key to immortality will be discovered in his lifetime, it will be used ethically and will be protected from selfish interests.
According to the research of Dr. Mikhail Blagosklonny, rapamycin’s two centric models have the ability to rejuvenate cells – in short, they can create new, younger cells that will replace the degenerated ones in just a short span of time. It means that for every degenerating cell that dies, tens or even hundreds of new ones replace it. These centric models also have the capability to strengthen the immune system. This means that old and new diseases, even if they mutate, could no longer harm the body easily because of the innovation that the centric models have introduced. The pathogens must evolve further into their most advanced forms in order to harm humans. These centric models are divided into two, and they are named the TOR and the MTOR model. These centric models can be found through a variety of ways: first one would be via genetics, where in a parent who has the TOR and the MTOR centric models on their DNA could pass it to their offspring.
Another way to obtain these is from degenerative cells which has undergone rejuvenation. The new, younger cells have a higher chance of bearing a TOR or MTOR centric model. The final way to obtain them is through the extraction of the TOR or MTOR centric model in diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.The potential of this research is high, and it could drive humans into another age, making fictional scientific discoveries like space travel possible. When Dr. Mikhail Blagosklonny initially presented his research on a group of scientists, they labeled it as ridiculous and impossible. However, after presenting additional evidences and success in his research, the scientists who once mocked Dr. Mikhail Blagosklonny are slowly taking their words back, as they also saw that the idea could be introduced in real life. Other pharmaceutical companies have taken note of the research made by Dr. Mikhail Blagosklonny, and they are also using all their resources to find a way on how to cure aging and live forever.
