At Human Longevity Inc. (HLI), our goal is to extend the healthy human lifespan and to revolutionize healthcare.
You've often heard me speak about how converging exponential technologies have the potential to disrupt industries. This is a blog providing a detailed overview of the road map for reinventing medicine and extending your "healthy, high-performance" lifespan.
I also want to invite you to join me and Brad Perkins, MD, HLI's Chief Medical Officer, for a webinar discussing the transformation of healthcare.
I believe we have a chance to make 100 years old the new 60… for you, your family, friends and colleagues.
Info on the webinar is here.
Two years ago, J. Craig Venter, Ph.D., Bob Hariri, M.D., Ph.D, and I came together with the vision of reinventing healthcare.
Today, healthcare is reactive and retrospective. Today's system is really more like "sick care" than anything else.
If you are between the ages of 50 and 74, your mortality rates are 30 percent for a man and 20 percent for women.
HLI's goal is to make healthcare proactive, preventative, and personalized – predicting what disease you are likely to develop, and helping you prevent it in the first place.
HLI capabilities are only possible now because of a number of converging exponential technologies: rapid, accurate whole genome sequencing (which has plummeted in cost five times faster than Moore's Law); Machine Learning; massive data transmission and storage; and new imaging technologies (or capabilities).
The Health Nucleus is HLI's clinical research program based at the company's headquarters in La Jolla, CA.
It's where we collect 150 gigabytes of data about you during an 8-hour day gathered through a series of tests and measurements designed to deliver the most complete picture of your health.
At HLI's Heath Nucleus, we'll collect the following info about you:
And more… believe it or not, the list is growing every day as we continue to add new tests and technologies.
After collecting ~150 gigabytes of data about you, we upload that data to our machine learning platform.
The goal of analyzing your health data is two-fold:
So far, the results have been spectacular...
From our first 200 Health Nucleus clients, we've discovered 30 percent have actionable discoveries with immediate clinical impact, or that identify a need for closer ongoing clinical surveillance. The Health Nucleus partners with your physician to develop a personalized health plan.
I have personally received several "thank you for saving my life" messages.
While HLI's Health Nucleus is not for everyone, and our capacity is limited, if you are interested in participating, the benefits are numerous.
If you'd like to learn more, please join me in an informational webinar I'm holding with our Chief Medical Officer Dr. Brad Perkins.
You can register to participate and listen in to the webinar here.
I invite you to take a look at the future of healthcare and how you might be able to significantly impact your life expectancy.
There has never been a more exciting time to be alive (and stay alive).
