Asia Genomics to present latest advances in artificial intelligence for biomarker development at the 3rd Annual Aging Research for Drug Discovery Forum in Basel

Asia Genomics, the Asian leader in genomics-enabled healthcare and wellness provider today announced that the CEO, Dr. Mun-Yew Wong will present on latest advances in artificially-intelligent biomarker development at the 3rd International Annual Aging Research for Drug Discovery Forum during the Basel Life Science Week in Switzerland.

"Aging is a complex multifactorial process leading to disease and disability. And while multiple research studies demonstrate life extension in animals, tracking the effectiveness of these interventions in a minimally-invasive way is extremely difficult and require novel artificially-intelligent approaches to track the most important aging biomarkers. We are developing a range of actionable biomarkers specific to the Asian population, using various tools that include machine learning. We are happy to report on our early progress at the Basel Life Science Week, one of the largest European drug discovery conferences", said Dr Mun-Yew Wong, M.D, CEO of Asia Genomics.

The 3rd Annual International Aging Research for Drug Discovery Forum is one of the main scientific events of the Basel Life Science Week, where thousands of experts in drug discovery and biomarker development convene annually to present, network and exhibit.

The event will transpire from 21st to 22nd of September in Basel:

"Asia Genomics is rapidly evolving into one of the leaders in genomics-enabled healthcare solutions in Asia with and all-star team of visionary scientists. Their efforts in prevention of age-related diseases and aging itself may result in transformative changes in longevity and wellness in Asia and the world. We are honored to have Dr. Mun Yew Wong present at the aging forum in Basel, the European capital of the pharmaceutical industry", said Alex Zhavoronkov, PhD, the co-chair of the 3rd Annual International Aging Research for Drug Discovery Forum.
