Altos Labs: Cell Rejuvenation Technology

Jeff Bezos is joining Russian-born billionaire Yuri Milner in creating a “Rejuvenation Startup” that will undoubtedly be seen as a competitor to the Google-backed Calico. Altos is pursuing biological reprogramming technology, a way to rejuvenate cells in the lab that some scientists think could be extended to revitalize entire animal bodies, ultimately prolonging human life. They started this endeavor with this topic in mind: “how biotechnology might be used to make people younger.” One of the senior scientists and scientific advisory board chair, Shinya Yamanaka, explains that while there is a lot we have yet to understand about this field and roadblocks that need to be overcome, there is significant potential especially with the team of scientists and researchers working together; one of which being Steve Horvath, whom we know as the creator of the epigenetic age measuring Horvath Clock.
