Challenging Ageing

  • Department of Chemistry Lensfield Road Cambridge, England, CB2 United Kingdom (map)

Since the dawn of time, ageing has been viewed as an inevitable fate, with conditions like cancer and dementia becoming more common as we get older. A growing number of scientists are questioning this common assumption. What if ageing was just another curable disease? Would there be ways to extend our lifespan from today thanks to a handful of well-targeted cellular processes and ageing biomarkers? Would premature ageing syndromes be curable? What is your biological age telling about yourselves? Are you older or younger than you think you are?

We have gathered a panel of speakers who will tackle these questions, share their expertise and discuss the latest developments that will enable and optimise opportunities for healthier ageing. The talks will be followed by a networking session where food, wine and soft drinks will be served (a joint service from Aromi and Cambridge Wine Merchants).
