Evelyne Bischof Interview
Evelyne Yehudit Bischof, MD, MPH, FEFIM, is a professor at Shanghai University of Medicine and Health Sciences, a visiting professor at Tel Aviv University School of Medicine, and chief physician for internal medicine in Renji University Hospital of Jiatong School of Medicine. This means that she is a perfect example of a modern longevity professional,...
AI Drug Discovery
A new study conducted by Insilico Medicine in collaboration with leading aging research institutions has identified novel therapeutic targets for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a devastating age-associated neurodegenerative disease [1]. Disease and aging: not that different Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a rare neuromuscular disease. It is most famous for afflicting the well-known physicist Stephen Hawking,...
Cells Under Microscope
A team of researchers publishing in Aging has developed a method of identifying senescent cells through their physical morphology, potentially making future senescence research much easier. Senescent cells look different Before modern biomarkers of senescence were eludicated, cell size was considered to be one of its defining features, and the researchers cite a 1969 paper...
Brain Image
Cardiologists, epidemiologists, and other researchers publishing in Aging have discovered that epigenetic aging and brain scans can be combined to accurately predict cognitive decline. Two entirely different measurements The ongoing CARDIA study was started in 1985 to monitor coronary artery risk development in young adults (who are no longer young). This large cohort has been...
The robot eye of AI
A group of scientists has created a neural network that identifies senescent cells by their morphology and can be used for senolytic drug screening [1]. Image recognition is a showcase triumph of artificial intelligence. While this problem was considered extremely hard to crack in previous decades, algorithms have now exceeded human abilities in multiple cases....
CGI of protein structures
Alphabet's subsidiary DeepMind has all but solved the problem of predicting a protein’s shape from its amino acid sequence. DeepMind’s program AlphaFold reached close to 90% average accuracy, which is comparable to experimental structural analysis. Proteins: life's multitool Proteins are the primary tool with which organisms do stuff. They are indispensable for most biological processes....
