Why did Moses live until 120? Developments and the Future of Human Aging
Life expectancy has risen across the world dramatically in the last century, and the average baby born today is predicted to reach the age of 100. However, we still struggle with the fact that aging is associated with age-related diseases and with poor quality of life. We will discuss our understanding of the evolution of aging and the biological mechanisms for aging. We will review the approaches to identify the protective factors that can be targets for drug discovery and allow the preservation of good health as we age, with little medical cost.
