Event description
DevTank Roundtable: "Chasing Immortality: Advances in Aging Sciences"

About this Event

Over the last 100 years, there has been a dramatic increase in global life expectancy. Much of this can be attributed to better sanitation, nutrition and understanding of disease, but the life extending technologies of today are far more complex than a good diet. Advances in the understanding of how we age are opening the door for new interventions that promise to cure chronic disease, rejuvenate our bodies, and push the boundary of the human life span. This DevTank will give insight into the latest developments in the field of aging science, and will look at the ways that we are extending our life span and the burden that the large aging population will add to the Canadian healthcare system.
