« back to classes page

Learn about the latest medical research on the biology and genetics of centenarians as well as efforts to develop drugs that halt functional decline and diseases associated with aging.  Studies of people with “exceptional longevity” and drug testing on animals have spawned a new generation of promising pharmaceutical tools designed to enable people to grow older without growing sicker.  Dr. Barzilai will expound on his studies of the lifestyles and habits of people whose biological ages are much younger than their chronological ages and what trends in their familial gene mutations mean for future drug development.
