Can #AI help us catch Alzheimer’s before it progresses? Using data from the #Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative, scientists have designed an algorithm that can predict cognitive decline and may drive preventative treatments. #livebetterlonger https://t.co/nLwrUhTd0F

How are companies using the basic #aging discoveries of Buck scientists to develop new therapies? The @Guardian discusses cellular senescence pioneered by our own Judith Campisi and the startups trying to target it. @UnityBiotech #livebetterlonger https://t.co/GChlLfrQm1

New study in @Cell_Metabolism reveals a previously unknown connection between a central component of the immune system, complement C3, and autophagy in pancreatic beta cells. #livebetterlonger https://t.co/KQ3JAl4X6N

Such a blast ringing the Opening Bell @nasdaq this morning! Thank you to everyone who has supported $UBX - our employees & Board members, investors, partners, family & friends – for helping us get to where we are today!

That look when your science turns into medicines that could help people #livebetterlonger. Congratulations to @UnityBiotech and Buck Professor Judy Campisi on ringing the Opening Bell @nasdaq today.
