Chief Science Officer, Dr. Brian Chen, explains what is epigenetics and the science behind “M-Panel.”
In their seminal study of over 13,000 people, Dr. Steve Horvath and Dr. Brian Chen proved that our epigenetic M-Panel technology “predicts all‐cause mortality above and beyond chronological age and traditional risk factors.”²
This remarkable video, created by the Walter+Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research in Victoria, Australia, is a great introduction to the science of epigenetics.
The video uses animation and highly magnified images to demonstrate the role that epigenetics plays in the creation of the human body. It is a look at this process as you have never seen it before. ³

In a story about the science and business of lifespan prediction, MIT Technology Review quotes Dr. Brian Chen, LifeEGX Board Member Morgan Levine and Dr. Steve Horvath.
Dr. Horvath tells reporter Karen Weintraub that he was stunned to find a powerful link between epigenetic changes and aging. “I was blown away by how strong the signal was,” he says. “I dropped most other projects in my lab and said: ‘This is the future.’”
Like it or not, the story says “the death predictor is coming” and, in the near future, any health system that doesn’t use this data “is going to deemed archaic.”
