Peter Fedichev at Ending Age-Related Diseases 2019

Share

We’re continuing to release talks from Ending Age-Related Diseases 2019, our highly successful two-day conference that featured talks from leading researchers and investors, bringing them together to discuss the future of aging and rejuvenation biotechnology.

Dr. Peter Fedichev, co-founder of GERO, discussed biomarkers in the context of mouse research, particularly physiological frailty and blood cell counts. He introduced a new index, the Dynamic Frailty Index, and explained it in detail, including the advantages that it has over conventional frailty models and epigenetic clocks. He also explained the differences between humans and mice, most notably the fact that interventions that work in mice do not always apply to human beings.
