The length of time we remain in good health is the focus of Birgit Schilling and the team at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging. The team’s mass spectrometry-based proteomics studies use data independent acquisition to look for biomarkers of aging and age-related diseases that can threaten an individual’s health span. The researchers see a future where non-invasive tests enable early intervention and the preservation of health.

“I would like you, maybe in 20 years, [to] feel just as healthy as you hopefully feel today.”
