Healthspan & Longevity | GIANT Health Event 2019

Healthspan & Longevity

More people live into old age than was the case in the past, and while people tend to be healthier at any given age than was true in the past, one consequence of these longer lives is that we live longer with chronic disease.

What can we do to maximize our healthy years, and postpone these debilitating conditions?

We’ve brought together some of the leading figures in longevity to share their views on how the scientific and biotechnology communities might help us to slow or even reverse ageing .
