Parent Episode: Dr. Eric Verdin on Ketogenic Diet Longevity, Beta-Hydroxybutyrate, HDAC Inhibitors & NAD+

The field of aging biomarkers is evolving rapidly. Scientists are using artificial intelligence to analyze databases of facial images from people of different ages matched with metabolites in order to develop biomarkers. Other researchers are studying blood markers from people of different ages to create an aging curve. In addition, the epigenetic clock assesses changes in DNA methylation that are predictive of age. In this clip, Dr. Eric Verdin describes the emerging field of biomarkers of aging and the diverse strategies, including artificial intellegence, that are being employed.
