$101 Million Longevity Competition (MIT Technology Review)

The X Prize Foundation has launched a revolutionary $101 million competition to combat aging. Aimed at restoring a decade’s worth of muscle, brain, and immune function in the elderly, the prize underscores a shift in focus from treating age-related diseases to enhancing overall health in later life. The challenge, to be concluded by 2030, seeks to develop therapies that effectively reduce biological age in individuals aged 65 to 80. Innovations could range from existing drugs to novel strategies targeting cellular rejuvenation. The competition’s rigorous criteria demand significant improvements in cognition, muscle, and immune functions. 

Funded by organizations like Hevolution and SOLVE FSHD, the prize will be awarded in stages, culminating in a grand announcement in 2030. This initiative marks a pivotal step in the pursuit of extending healthy lifespans, encouraging a diverse array of scientific endeavors.

The 18 Latest, Greatest, Longevity Advancements (Forbes)

In the realm of biotechnology, the Forbes Technology Council highlights 18 remarkable developments that are reshaping our understanding of health, environment, and ultimately longevity. 

Key advancements include Google and Harvard’s brain mapping project, which opens new avenues for treating neurological disorders. Autonomous therapeutic systems are being developed to manage patient care with greater precision, reducing medical errors. Another breakthrough is AlphaFold by DeepMind, which is revolutionizing protein folding, essential for drug development.
