Scientists have devised a transcriptome-based aging clock that allows for precise measurement of biological age in C. elegans worms and shows promising results in humans as well [1]. The purpose of aging clocks One of the central questions of longevity research is how to measure biological age. If a pathology, genetic difference, lifestyle choice, or...
Jan Gruber and his team at Yale-NUS have recently completed a detailed set of studies looking at eleven of the most promising anti-aging single drugs, using nematode worms (C. elegans) as their model organism. Drug synergy found to increase lifespan in worms Even though testing the effects of single drugs on health and longevity in...
