Muhdo Partner With King's College London to Undertake an Advanced Research Project Around Epigenetics, AI and Informatics
This year we will be focusing on how artificial intelligence (AI) can help us to better understand the value of health and lifestyle data for both the end consumer as well as helping to guide the research to enhance healthy longevity.
The gap between life and health expectancy is growing larger every year. Our health and lifestyle needs are also changing, and more research is required to reduce the risk of preventable ageing-related diseases to improve physical and mental wellbeing throughout the life course.
We might be living longer, but unfortunately not healthier, with more multiple long-term conditions like asthma, diabetes, obesity and heart disease on the rise. It's actually estimated that around
75% of health and life expectancy after the age of 40 is modifiable.
Muhdo is pioneering Epigenetics testing in the workplace and community, which will help each of us to understand our biological age and better predict our future health, bridging the gap between consumer wellness and technology. This will allow people to be more proactive in helping to manage their health and wellbeing through lifestyle changes.
Together with ARK affiliated academics and healthcare professionals as well as industry partners, Muhdo aims to develop the next generation of consumer epigenetics testing integrated with other biomarkers of lifestyle and environmental data through AI and advanced data analytics. In particular, Svitlana Surodina, ARK's new Entrepreneur in Residence and researcher in the Department of Informatics at King's, will be developing novel technologies for integrating with Muhdo's platform.
Muhdo is also extremely pleased to be working closely with Dr Richard Siow, ARK Director, who will be joining Muhdo's Scientific Advisory Board.
His research focuses on nutrigenomics for healthy longevity and the mechanisms ageing. He has published extensively leading biomedical journals and is the UK Lead for the International Society on Ageing and Disease. He is an Associate Editor of Frontiers in Genetics and Frontiers in Nutrition and a member of the Advisory Board of the UK All Party Parliamentary Group for Longevity and The Lancet Healthy Longevity.
