Herbal Supplement Extends Life Span Under Some Environmental Conditions

April 16, 2015 Abstract Genetic studies indicate that aging is modulated by a great number of genetic pathways. We have used Drosophila longevity and stress assays to test a multipath intervention strategy. To carry out this strategy, we supplemented the flies with herbal extracts (SC100) that are predicted to modulate the expression of many genes […]

AIs, Superflies, and the Path to Immortality

Interpretation of genetic data from fruit flies bred for longevity suggests the major culprit [behind poor health, disease and limited healthspan] may not be accumulated damage, or any particular mechanism, but rather the intersection of biological complexity with evolutionary adaptation By Ben Goertzel August 10, 2010 Excerpt from the August 10, 2010 H+ Magazine Editor’s […]

Genescient and Kronos Announce Alzheimer’s Disease Collaboration

Genescient Corporation and Kronos Science Laboratory will work together to analyze the Kronos Alzheimer’s Case-Control Database, considered to be the finest Alzheimer’s Disease genetic data set in the US. The companies hope to identify genes previously unrecognized genes that are involved in Alzheimer’s Disease.
