Testing for Biological Age: Dr. Semira Gonseth Nusslé, Genknowme
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Older biological age is associated with 

  • higher mortality 
  • and various age-related diseases.

What can you do if you know that you look older, feel older, are older biologically than the date of birth on your passport? What can you do with your test biological age?

You’ll hear about

  • longevity and healthspan
  • chronological vs biological age
  • what is an epigenetic clock
  • how to measure biological age
  • what happens in your epigenome when you drink alcohol, smoke, or sit too long

Dr. Semira Gonseth Nusslè is a co-founder and Chief Medical Officer at Genknowme. A medical doctor by training she joined the pioneers in epigenetic epidemiology at the University of California San Francisco and got real hooked. She awesomely explains the inside-outs of epigenetics, DNA, down to DNA methylation measuring.

Genknowme is a Swiss startup that developed an epigenomic test for biological age that not only motivates better to change your harmful lifestyle but also can track changes for the better (or worse).
