Levine Interview
In her lab at Yale, Dr. Morgan Levine tackles some of the most exciting and difficult problems in geroscience. She specializes in bioinformatics and is working on creating and finessing clocks that measure biological age. We talked with Dr. Levine about her work, the impact that biological age clocks have had on the longevity field,...

These days, it seems like you cannot go for a walk without tripping over another aging clock, and today is no exception. DeepMAge, a DNA methylation aging clock developed using deep learning, has recently been created by the Hong Kong-based company Deep Longevity. There are two common ways to measure age: biological and chronological. The...
Polina Mamoshina at Ending Age-Related Diseases 2020
At Ending Age-Related Diseases 2020, Dr. Polina Mamoshina of Insilico Medicine gave a talk on the subject of biomarkers of human aging that are generated through deep learning algorithms. Deep learning, an advancement over older algorithms of artificial intelligence, has allowed for the useful collection of various data, including facial analysis, bone x-rays, blood markers,...
DNA clock
Researchers have proposed a new epigenetic clock designed to measure subtle epigenetic changes in vitro [1]. They hope that their discovery will help to expedite the creation of new anti-aging drugs. Measuring biological age Aging research is all about the difference between chronological and biological age. The former is simply the passage of time, but...

A new study reviews the state of the art of aging biomarkers and explores the future development of even better ways of measuring biological age. The need for better aging biomarkers Human life expectancy has been increasing throughout the 20th and 21st centuries due to improvements such as better access to healthcare and sanitation, lower...

A type of artificial intelligence technique is now being used to develop new drugs and therapies and could perhaps even help to solve aging. An urgent need for aging biomarkers There has long been an urgent need in our field to develop increasingly accurate biomarkers of aging so that the efficacy of interventions can be...
