Getting Here

Join us to hear Tim Peterson and Shin-Ichiro Imai discuss their cutting edge anti-aging research and therapeutics.  Tim Peterson will be speaking about his research on the healthspan – the period of life that one is free from aging-associated conditions – and the development of anti-aging drugs that may increase the ratio of “young” to “old” genes.  Shin-Ichiro Imai will introduce the cutting edge front of aging/longevity research in his lab and discuss efforts to develop an anti-aging intervention using an NAD intermediate called nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN).

I am a non medical individual who has an intense case of curiosity. I attend as man of this type of lecture and I can to lean about areas that interest me. This lecture was purely academic , thus much of it was over my head. However the basic information was very interesting and tended to reinforce my thoughts that much of the medical work being done is very much of a two edged sword. One the one edge the quest for knowledge is a key part of being human...on the other edge extending the life span of out species carries extreme conveniences.
All that being said I will attend as many of these lectures as i can. They are informative, stimulating and help me understand more about who we are.

Thank you so much for making them available
Charles Hoehn.
