Argument in STATNews by our director on building a consensus definition of biological aging

AgeCurve’s director, Attila Csordas published an opinion piece in STATNews, a usual destination for serious life sciences, pharma and biotech industry. Attila develops three consecutive steps — empirical, philosophical, and computational — that can be taken to create a good definition of biological aging. He analyses existing definitions, offers criteria for a good definition and […]

Sampling from biological aging definitions: Brunet Lab, Cell, 2019

Our next definition comes from the Cell Review paper The Genetics of Aging: A Vertebrate Perspective by the Brunet Lab at Stanford: Aging is the progressive decline in functional integrity and homeostasis, culminating in death. Commentary: definition attempt consists of 5 distinct propositions in total: 1. Aging is a decline. 2. Aging is a progressive decline. […]

Sampling from biological aging definitions: ‘Ageotype’ paper, 2020

Ahead of our Towards a consensus definition of biological aging workshop, happening on the 23rd of April in Cambridge, we start a blog series featuring different definitions from the literature and from researchers around. These definitions will show important elements of the concept while also demonstrating how highly idiosyncratic these definitions are. Thereby supporting the […]

Preliminary study gives hints at different individual aging trajectories

Using different molecular omics data, spanning 2-3 years and 106 healthy individuals a study looked into personal aging markers and pathway enrichment analysis to make suggestions of different ‘ageotypes’ existing at an individual level. omics: transcriptomics on peripheral blood mononuclear cells, proteomics/metabolomics on plasma,  cytokine assays on serum, nasal and gut microbiome using 16S RNA […]
