New Protein Story added to AgeCurve App: Zombie Cells

Cellular senescence, the presence of no longer functioning, but also not disappearing ‘zombie’ cells is a well-known hallmark of biological aging.  This week, we have added our second protein score to our Lack of Frail Cells SuperStory, a protease inhibitor.  Please see for instance this study by the Buck Institute for Research on Aging. Our users can […]

New Protein Stories added to AgeCurve App: Immune Aging and Protein Guards

In the coming weeks we plan to roll out several new aging scores. This week we have added the following two new scores: In the time of a pandemic that demonstrated how important it is to know more about the aging of our immune system, we were finally able to add an interleukin to the Immunity SuperStory, extending […]

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 […]

Longevity Technology interview with our founding director and some good news

The new, longevity industry focused website, Longevity Technology is running an interview with our Founder/Director Attila Csordas, called Proteomics and biological age measurement. The quotes below are from the original, much more detailed version of the interview. Longevity Technology: What is your current funding situation? Attila Csordas: We are about to close our first serious funding round. Now […]

The event page of the upcoming Towards a consensus definition of biological aging workshop is now up with more information on the programme, speakers and tickets.

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 […]
