Medicine On The Cutting Edge – How Old Are You…Really?

The Nobel Prize for Medicine two years ago went to scientists discovering the process by which our cells age and die. My guest today Stephen Matlin is the CEO of a new company, Life Length (, who works with one of the world’s leading experts in telomere science—Dr. Maria Blasco, Ph.D. Dr. Blasco and others have developed a revolutionary technology to accurately measure the length of our telomeres, a primary target of the aging process. With this information, doctors and patients will be able to decipher biological age from chronological age, and then intervene with known strategies that delay cell death and help us live longer. After listening to the program, you may contact Stephen Matlin at,, for further information.
