The timeline shows how the Human Genome Project sparked research that led to the discovery of mortality prediction technology. Life Epigenetics holds the exclusive license for lifespan-predictive technology developed at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) for the life insurance industry.

The infographic is being released as a follow-up to a webinar company executives Jon Sabes and Brian Chen participated in with IRIS.xyz and ETF Trends titled “Technology that Disrupts the Life Insurance Industry.” IT is available at this link.

The webinar is now available on replay to qualified financial professionals at this link: IRS.xyz/ETF Trends Webinar link

Since February, Life Epigenetics has been collecting and analyzing data from life insurance policyholders and has been discussing its work with major life insurance and reinsurance companies that have expressed interest in learning more about how the technology can add value to their businesses. In October, it has announced pilot programs with two life insurance companies to test its epigenetic-based M-Panel technology.
