AgeCurve is working on an at-home COVID19 targeted proteomics saliva test

At AgeCurve we specialise in delivering direct-to-consumer personal proteomics results to provide deep aging profiles to end users by measuring proteins which contribute to several hallmark aging processes. Using non-invasive salivary collection as our source we can also measure constituents of the oral microbiome; bacteria that inhabit the oral cavity. The oral microbiome may include viruses and fungi […]

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 […]
