The Age of Ageing - Can We Intervene
RESEARCH ON HUMAN AGING
It is now understood that aging is the biggest risk factor underlying chronic diseases that are increasing healthcare costs and impairing quality of life in developed countries. In animal models, it is possible to slow aging, conferring a longer and healthier life. Dr. Kennedy will describe the current state of research efforts to slow human aging and extend health span, and also discuss lifestyle interventions available for implementation by individuals now.
