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…

A simple technique to measure the amount of amyloid beta in the brain could improve diagnosis and drug trials for Alzheimer’s disease, according to the results of new research. A simple blood test Japanese researchers led by Dr. Katsuhiko Yanagisawa have published a new study suggesting that a screening test could help to boost the…

There is one common public reaction to my talks that bothers me quite a bit. I am worried that after each of my lectures, people will just start taking lots of anti-aging pills without regard for dosage or effectiveness, potentially hurting themselves in the process. This is because one of the most common reactions to…

In a new study, researchers propose that TIGIT is a marker of T cell senescence and exhaustion in the immune system[1]. However, not only is TIGIT just a biomarker, it is also a potential therapeutic target; as the researcher team discovered, lowering levels of TIGIT resulted in the restoration of some lost function in T…

Sarcopenia, a condition that causes loss of muscle mass, is a common ailment that comes with aging. It wouldn’t be correct to talk about who is affected and who isn’t, because everyone experiences at least some degree of muscle mass loss, along with reduced strength, after age 40 or 50. As you may imagine, sarcopenia’s…

The search for accurate ways to measure biological age is an ongoing quest in aging research. It is important for academia to reach a consensus on robust, cost-effective, and reliable biomarkers of aging in order for the field to progress. Currently, there is a lack of reliable and fast ways to assess biological age and…
