Insilico to present latest advances in deep learning for biomarker development at 2019 PMWC
(InSilico Medicine, Inc.) Aging is a complex process observed in all biological systems and organizations. Recent studies suggest that a set of biomarkers, rather than an individual biomarker, constitute the most effective means of assessing the health status. Alex Zhavoronkov will present 'Biomarkers of Aging' at the 2019 PMWC Conference. He will share the latest development of comprehensive and robust aging biomarkers using deep learning, blood biochemistry, transcriptomics, and even imaging data, which is able to track the effectiveness of the various interventions that Insilico is developing.
