It’s my pleasure to announce that Aubrey de Grey is a confirmed participant and speaker at our Towards a consensus definition of biological aging workshop, happening on the 23rd of April, 2020, in Cambridge, UK. Aubrey is the Chief Scientific Officer of SENS Research Foundation and also an AgeCurve advisor. Most importantly, he is a […]
Below please see the talk of Attila’s at the Aikora Health event called Longevity – How Humans Will Live Longer and Prosper.
A US-based research team finally published the defining study on using mass spectrometry proteomics to deliver meaningful biological aging profiles, to predict chronological age with a panel of proteins across the whole life trajectory, using thousands of blood samples, from age 18-95. The paper was published in Nature Medicine and is called Undulating changes in human […]
There are many ways to define biological/organismal aging, here I collected together 6. They are presented in historical order to show how different topics showed up in them and thinking on aging gained more depth. You should not expect strict definitions in the logical sense with necessary and sufficient conditions but attempts to highlight the […]
In a recent Quartz piece called The first drugs designed to fight aging are ready for human testing, the journalist W. Harry Fortuna provides an excellent and pictorial description of the important biological process, cellular senescence: Senolytics target a known mechanism of aging, cell senescence. Normally, cells die a “complete” death known as apoptosis. Senescence is […]
During a recent Gen P user experience session one early adopter asked me to provide a reading list to get the user started with digging into understanding aging science and longevity and healthspan extension technologies/scenarios. Here I provide a short subjective list containing different resources suited to a general non-biomedical audience. The list contains 1 scientific […]
For the sake of simplicity people use ‘Aging’ as a term to denote all the underlying processes behind this most complex biological phenomenon, experienced by most and happening in all human adults during their lifetime. Laypeople and scientists alike use the singular form, while in the light of recent research (think of the last couple decades) it’s […]
