Steve Horvath

Professor of Human Genetics & Biostatistics at UCLA

Steve Horvath is a UCLA professor known for developing the Horvath aging clock, which is a highly accurate molecular biomarker of aging, and for developing weighted correlation network analysis. The recipient of several research awards he has studied genomic biomarkers of aging, the aging process, and many age related diseases/conditions.

Founder of Iduna Therapeutics and Academy for Health & Lifespan Research, Scientific Collaborator at the Intervene Immune.
