New DNA clock may change how we measure aging

February 17, 2024

Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) are hoping so after developing a DNA clock that may unlock the secrets of aging. These new epigenetic clocks can more accurately predict biological aging and the effectiveness of anti-aging treatments. The research revolves around the concept of DNA methylation, a biological process that modifies the DNA structure and affects how genes function. Further validation of the clocks was conducted using data from the Framingham Heart Study and the Normative Aging Study.
