Cellular senescence: zombie cells and matrix metalloproteinases

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 […]

Silicon Valley Entrepreneur Daniel Reda joins AgeCurve’s Advisory Board

In July I have announced that Kathryn Lilley is joining our Advisory Board, advising us on science related matters. Today I’m thrilled to announce that Daniel Reda is joining our Board as well, helping us to navigate our small boat with his California trained, biomedical business skills. Daniel and I were colleagues at Singularity University […]

Top 4 ‘getting started’ in aging & healthspan extension resources

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 […]

Cambridge Proteomicist Kathryn Lilley joins AgeCurve’s Advisory Board

I am thrilled to announce that Professor Kathryn Lilley, of Cambridge University, is joining AgeCurve’s Advisory Board. Kathryn is the director of Cambridge Centre for Proteomics with a deep understanding of mass spectrometry based proteomics. I was privileged to work with Kathryn before and since AgeCurve is a Cambridge-based startup it was rather predictable for […]

AgeCurve Founder’s talk at an SIU event at Cambridge University

AgeCurve’s founder, Attila Csordas is giving a talk at the Meet the Founder: Pitch Perfect event at Cambridge University. The event is organised by The Science Innovation Union, an entrepreneurs-led not-for-profit organization with over 2,500 members across London, Cambridge, Oxford, Frankfurt.

GenomeWeb’s story on AgeCurve

Below please find the piece written by GenomeWeb editor Adam Bonislawski based on my answers and his research. GenomeWeb is one of the most respected, American online news organisation covering life sciences. Adam has been editing GenomeWeb’s Proteomics & Protein Research Section, serving the bigger proteomics community and he kindly gave us permission to post the whole report […]

It’s agings, not just aging: how the Gen P kit covers separate underlying processes

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 […]

Gen P: measuring the human holobiont: human host + permanent guest bacteria

Earlier we have compared the Gen P style first-to-market personal proteome kit to personal genome and personal microbiome services.  Today we highlight and explain one big difference implicit in those comparisons. For this we need to introduce the term holobiont: holobionts are units of biological organisations composed of the host organism and its associated microbes. The prefix […]

Comparing personal microbiome and personal proteome services

Although AgeCurve is opening a new niche market in digital health by offering age focused personal proteome services with Gen P, it builds upon the decade long progress made by other companies in the personal omics field. Big thank for those companies for creating that market at all and nurturing it with different innovations. In Differences […]

Pitching Gen P & AgeCurve at a DigitalHealth.London event

I had a chance to do a 5 min pitch for AgeCurve & Gen P in London at a Health Foundry event organised by DigitalHealth.London. AgeCurve was selected to do one pitch out of 5. Our final #5x5x5pitch comes from @agecurve's GenP – a 'molecular fitbit' to track your aging process @health_foundry — DigitalHealth.London (@DHealthLDN) January 19, […]
