On Wednesday, December 18, 2019, Ph.D. Oliver Hahn (Wyss-Coray lab, Neurology and Neurological Sciences, University of Stanford, School of Medicine, Stanford California) will give a talk as part of the colloquium series of the CBI in WT 2019. The talk is entitled "Tracing the origin of organismal ageing in health and disease through integrative systems biology" and will be held at the Center for Bioinformatics (CBI), building E2 1, lecture room 001, ground floor at 17:00 am (s.t.)

A team of Stanford University School of Medicine scientists including the speaker of the CBI professor Andreas Keller can reliably predict people's age by measuring proteins in their blood. In an interesting study, the team showed that many different proteins change markedly with advancing age. Furthermore, the study strengthened the case that men and women, who were about equally represented in the study, age differently.
