In aging research, there has long been a need for better biomarkers that can detect and confirm the presence of senescent cells. This has become particularly urgent in recent years due to the meteoric rise of the senescent cell-clearing therapies known as senolytics. Traditional ways of measuring senescent cell populations are problematic and have multiple…

The MouseAge project was launched last year after successful fundraising on Lifespan.io. It aimed to develop the first photographic biomarker of aging in mice to help researchers assess potential anti-aging therapies, reduce animal testing, and speed up the pace of aging research. The major advantage of this approach as opposed to other biomarkers of aging,…

A new aging clock developed by Professor Steve Horvath and his research team takes measuring your biological age a step further and can accurately predict your future lifespan. The epigenetic clock As we age, our DNA experiences chemical changes called DNA methylation (DNAm); these changes are used as a way to measure age and are…

The bacteria in your gut may offer an accurate way to measure your biological age, according to a new study. The microbiome In recent years, it has become increasingly apparent that the communities of bacteria, fungi, and other microbes living in our gut, known as the microbiome, are likely involved in aging, particularly the chronic…

The AgeMeter has been selected as an exhibit at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at the Eureka Park new technology area at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada on Jan 8-11. The AgeMeter is a functional aging biomarker system that can be used to monitor how someone is aging, and it was successfully funded…

A new palm-sized testing system has been developed to measure the levels of aging biomarkers circulating in the body. The new biomarker system, called Click-A+Chip, was developed by Sarah Balderston and Mandeep Sandhu, who are part of the Keck Graduate Institute team led by Assistant Professor of Medical Diagnostics and Therapeutics Kiana Aran. This miniature…

Today we have a small update on the progress of the AgeMeter, a functional aging biomarker device being developed thanks to the support of the community at Lifespan.io. Elliott Small the project leader recently updated us with some positive news about how the development of the Agemeter is progressing. We have decided to move towards…

The Undoing Aging conference, a joint effort between the SENS Research Foundation and Michael Greve’s Forever Healthy Foundation, took place on March 15-17 in Berlin, gathering many aging researchers, advocates, investors, and other important members of the longevity community in one place. As we invited one of the best Russian journalists at educating the public…

We are pleased to announce that the MouseAge app is now available at the Apple Store and researchers can download the application for free and use it in their research. A full press release was published by the MouseAge team today giving further details. “We are very excited to be launching the MouseAge photo app…

A potential new biomarker of aging has been discovered by researchers. This substance, found in urine, indicates oxidative damage that could be used to determine how much someone has aged biologically. Why do we need biomarkers of ageing? It is important for us to develop accurate and reliable biomarkers of aging, as these can show…
