Attila Csordas has picked the problem of ageing and the corresponding project of healthy longevity as his exclusive professional motivation at the age of 14. After starting out as a mitochondrial and stem cell researcher, Attila turned his attention to proteomics and has been working as a proteomics bioinformatician for the past 9 years. During these years he acquired hands-on experience in dealing with ever more complex proteomics datasets. Attila has founded AgeCurve Limited in Cambridge UK, the first ever startup using direct-to-consumer personal proteomics to provide deep age profiles to end users based on a saliva sample. Besides the default DTC offering, AgeCurve has already started to work with clinicians and biomedical researchers in order to find a way to contribute to longevity medicine.
