Gero is developing drugs against aging and aging-related diseases using next-generation AI technology.
Gero targets fundamental aging mechanisms and other aging-related conditions such as neurodegeneration accelerated aging/frailty after chemotherapy.
Gero managed to overcome limitations of previous generation AI by offering not just correlation analysis of biological big data, but causative models built with the use of physics of complex dynamic systems in addition to advanced machine learning.
The platform is extensively validated, enabling life extension and rejuvenation of multiple species.  The Gero approach triggered multiple collaborations and publications with world top academics, including researchers from Harvard Medical School, MIT,  NUS, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. Gero is one investment round away from getting a proof of concept in humans, previous round investors are pharma professionals and AI entrepreneurs with exits to Facebook and Google.
