Starting a new series on the blog, sharing 3 interesting links in the field of healthspan extension and aging in general. Hallmarks of Brain Aging: Adaptive and Pathological Modification by Metabolic States. Emerging findings are revealing mechanisms by which sedentary overindulgent lifestyles accelerate brain aging, whereas lifestyles that include intermittent bioenergetic challenges (exercise, fasting, and intellectual […]
AgeCurve’s founder and director, Attila Csordas has been invited to attend Founders Forum‘s HealthTech event on the 15th of June, near London, UK.

AgeCurve’s founder and director, Attila Csordas has been invited to give a talk at the upcoming Undoing Aging, 2018 conference, in Berlin, organised by the SENS Research Foundation and the Forever Healthy Foundation. The conference features heavyweights of molecular biogerontology worldwide, both from academy and the biomedical industry. Attila is scheduled to talk on the […]
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 […]
The WHO is under pressure to commit more work and focus on healthy aging. A representative and data-backed call was expressed by the paper published in Aging and Disease, called Aging Health and R&D for Healthy Longevity Must Be Included into the WHO Work Program It looks like the WHO has listened as according to John Beard, Director […]
At AgeCurve we are trying to build a startup culture that is aging-savvy from the ground up. This is not as easy as it sounds as aging is a phenomenon affecting the majority of human activities and domains, so quite an intimidating subject. Also it is not as easy to convince a devops for instance […]
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 […]
