The big news of the week was the launch of Altos labs and their ambitious plan to tackle aging through cell therapies. Altos has recruited a large number of top cell biologists away from academia.

That team plus top biotech execs and a $3B war chest make Altos one to watch in coming years. I wouldn’t be surprised if they work on many diseases, not just those related to aging.

I wonder — what is the origin of the Altos Labs company name? In English, an alto is a low female singing voice. What might be more likely is the Spanish meaning of “high”. What do you think?
