Title: Prospects that Emerging Science Offer for Longer Healthy Lifespans
Summary: Giuliano will discuss the wide range of sciences related to aging, as frequently reported in his blog, http://www.agingsciences.com. He will provide an overview of the sciences relative to aging, important lessons regarding human aging, the close relationships between health and aging, and approaches that have extended the lives of laboratory animals. He will also relate conventional and emerging wisdom about living long lives, including new fields of research that may lead to enabling healthy human lifespans of twice the current average. He will explain how the "stem cell supply chain" may be enhanced to extend healthy lifespans.
About the speaker: As an independent longevity consultant, Giuliano examines longevity-related research and has developed an in-depth grasp of the disciplines involved, including cell and molecular biology, genomics, epigenomics, stem cells, metabolemics, nutritional science, and age-related diseases. In 2008, he created a comprehensive online treatise, "Anti-Aging Firewalls, the Science and Technology of Longevity," which is updated every few weeks to keep pace with research developments.
