What do you do if you think targeting the #hallmarksofaging is a biased approach? Start a company, of course! Get the inside scoop on Buck-born startup Gerostate Alpha, which is using an unbiased drug screening approach to tackle key aging phenotypes. https://www.longevity.technology/the-major-modulators-of-aging-remain-to-be-discovered/

The first-ever issue of @NatureAging (insert birthday/longevity pun here), @EricVerdin and Herb Kasler provide commentary on new work from @Emma_S_Chambers and @Akbarlab describing the effects of #inflammaging on #adapativeimmunity
