US Army longevity research

Longevity research keeps showing up in unexpected places.  The US Army is pursuing research related to the third theory of aging in my Anti-Aging firewalls treatise, Mitochondrial Damage. They have an anti-aging research program called “Optimized Human Performance: Mitochondrial Energetics The stated objective of the program is “Develop metabolic supplements to optimize adenosine triphosphate production in eukaryotes.”  Of course, optimizing adenosine triphosphate production in humans is one of the prime objectives of the supplements in the firewall for this theory of aging.  But the Army is out to see how the job can best be done. The project involves screening libraries of compounds for their effects “that increase mitochondrial copy number and/or the efficiency of mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation.”  One intended outcome of the project is to identify supplements which would allow older experienced soldiers to have the same physical and mental performance capabilities as a 20 year-old. This could allow for later retirement of experienced soldiers and significantly increase the human resource capability of the army.

About Vince Giuliano

Being a follower, connoisseur, and interpreter of longevity research is my latest career. I have been at this part-time for well over a decade, and in 2007 this became my mainline activity. In earlier reincarnations of my career. I was founding dean of a graduate school and a university professor at the State University of New York, a senior consultant working in a variety of fields at Arthur D. Little, Inc., Chief Scientist and C00 of Mirror Systems, a software company, and an international Internet consultant. I got off the ground with one of the earliest PhD's from Harvard in a field later to become known as computer science. Because there was no academic field of computer science at the time, to get through I had to qualify myself in hard sciences, so my studies focused heavily on quantum physics. In various ways I contributed to the Computer Revolution starting in the 1950s and the Internet Revolution starting in the late 1980s. I am now engaged in doing the same for The Longevity Revolution. I have published something like 200 books and papers as well as over 430 substantive.entries in this blog, and have enjoyed various periods of notoriety. If you do a Google search on Vincent E. Giuliano, most if not all of the entries on the first few pages that come up will be ones relating to me. I have a general writings site at and an extensive site of my art at Please note that I have recently changed my mailbox to
