Google Inc said it plans to set up a new company called Calico, headed by Apple Inc and Genentech Chairman Art Levinson, to develop technologies to tackle health issues related to aging. The new company will be run separately from Google, the world's largest Internet search company, with a focus on issues including life-threatening diseases and problems affecting mental and physical agility due to aging. "While this is clearly a longer-term bet, we believe we can make good progress within reasonable timescales with the right goals and the right people," Google Chief Executive Larry Page said in a Net posting on Wednesday.

Don't forget, hundreds of biopharma companies are hiring too! (We know you can't resist.)
