Ageing has a biology. We all know who is old and who is young. What many do not realize is that this biology drives age-related diseases and it can be targeted. We can work with biology to delay, stop and in some cases, even reverse part of aging.
The last pandemic has demonstrated how vulnerable older adults are. Join Dr. Nir Barzilai as he uses his learnings over the years and specifically 2020, to help us be better prepared for the next pandemic by hacking the aging process.
