We are delighted to announce that the AgeMeter project has reached its initial funding goal and development of the device can now begin thanks to the support of the community. As a result, we will soon have a great aging biomarker system available to the healthcare professional and home enthusiast alike.    We would like…

Today Elena Milova and I made a short video discussing the aging process, drug development and aging biomarkers in support of the Agemeter project. We talked a little bit about how aging is made up of a number of distinct processes, often called hallmarks or damages, and how functional aging is an excellent way to…

Today we have another video update from the Mouseage team who are working to create the first artificial intelligence-based photographic biomarker of aging in mice. The project aims to provide researchers with a cheap and effective biomarker system that can be used to quickly determine if interventions against the age-related diseases are effective as well…

Aging remains the number one killer, taking the lives of 100,000 people per day due to a number of severe age-related diseases like cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s. Still, this is not the only danger we have to protect ourselves from: the recent developments in the US with the devastating Hurricane Harvey clearly show how…

A new study published by scientists at the Salk Institute recently shows how that changes in the nucleolus of progeria cells and normally aged cells share some characteristics that may allow them to be used as a biomarker for biological age[1]. What is Progeria? Hutchinson-Gilford progeria is a rare genetic disease that causes people to…

NEW YORK, NY, August 29, 2017. Lifespan.io is launching a crowdfunding campaign to support MouseAGE, an application to assess visual biomarkers of aging in laboratory animals. This Artificial Intelligence-powered research tool, which is being developed by Youth Laboratories, will help scientists accurately determine the biological age of mice during experiments using advanced visual recognition and…

As your body ages, increasing amounts of your cells enter a state of cellular senescence. These cells no longer divide or support the tissues of which they are a part, and they emit a cocktail of harmful chemical signals that encourage other nearby cells to also enter the same senescent state. The presence of senescent…

There is a growing list of aging biomarkers available to researchers that help them measure how well someone is aging and assess how aging interventions are working in preclinical testing. Some clinical biomarkers, such as DNA methylation and telomere length, are commonly used in labs. Other biomarkers, such as blood pressure, grip strength, heart rate…

Chronological age has been typically used as a way to gauge how someone is aging; however, this is a poor measure indeed. People tend to age at different rates due to a variety of reasons: environment, diet, diseases in earlier life, stress, exercise, and lifestyle all play a role in how a person ages. Clearly…

LAS VEGAS, NV, July 18, 2017. — Centers for Age Control has launched a fundraising campaign on Lifespan.io in support of the AgeMeter™, a diagnostic system to measure human functional age. The device is meant to assist in the assessment of therapeutics that address the aging processes during clinical trials, as well as being a…
