Brian Kennedy

Prof of Biochemistry and Physiology at NUS, CSO Ponce De Leon Health

Dr. Brian Kennedy is internationally recognized for his research in the basic biology of aging and as a visionary committed to translating research discoveries into new ways of delaying, detecting, preventing and treating human aging and associated diseases. He is the Director of the Centre for Healthy Ageing at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine at National University Singapore. He also serves as a Distinguished Professor in Biochemistry and Physiology. The Centre seeks to demonstrate that ageing interventions can be successfully employed in humans to extend healthspan, the disease-free and highly functional period of life. Other goals include world class preclinical research to better understand the biology of ageing and community-based approached to improve health quality with ageing in Singapore.

From 2010 to 2016 he was the President and CEO of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging. Currently he remains as a Professor at the Institute, where his lab addresses the biology of aging. Dr. Kennedy has adjunct appointments at the Leonard Davis School of Gerontology at USC and the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Washington, where he was a faculty member from 2001 to 2010. In addition, Dr. Kennedy is also actively involved with a number of Biotechnology companies, serving in consulting and Board capacities, as is Scientific Director of Affirmativ Health. In addition, Dr. Kennedy serves as a Co-Editor-In-Chief at Aging Cell. Finally, Dr. Kennedy has a track record of interaction in China, where he was a Visiting Professor at the Aging Research Institute at Guangdong Medical College from 2009 to 2014.
