Extending Human Healthspan and Longevity

Online webinar focused on longevity extension without health related issues organized by The New York Academy of Sciences with Nir Barzilai and Pinchas Cohen as keynote speakers.

19-May-2021

Since 1900, life expectancy throughout much of the world has more than doubled from approximately 35 years to 80+ years.  Yet there have been consequences to this extended lifespan — disease, disability, and frailty have all impacted the quality of life associated with these later years.

As we seek to further extend longevity, how can we simultaneously help people live longer and delay age-related health issues?  To explore this key question, this conference will bring together physicians and scientists from academia and industry in the fields of genetics, biology of aging, endocrinology, gerontology, clinical psychology, physiology, and more.  Sessions will focus on three primary areas: (i) Targetable Aging Processes (ii) Biomarkers for Therapies, and (iii) Translational Research at the Forefront of Healthspan and Lifespan.

Nir Barzilai and Pinchas Cohen are keynote speakers at this webinar. Others are:

• Ana Maria Cuervo

• Daniel Promislow

• George Kuchel

• James Kirkland

• Jamie Justice

• Joan Mannick

• Laura Niedernhofer

• Luigi Ferrucci,

• Mitzi M. Gonzales
