The New Frontier of Extending Lifespans and Healthspan
Over the past century, scientific advances and policy have dramatically improved global life expectancy. But as an ageing population grows, so do the economic and public health consequences. What can the future look like if political leaders are bold enough to embrace a new world of tech innovation? Join the Tony Blair Institute, Stanford Healthcare Innovation Lab and Oracle Health as they discuss the next scientific frontier in extending longevity and why they’ve partnered on this issue. Covering the biology of ageing, senolytics, regenerative medicine, and advances in cloud computing, machine learning and AI, they’ll explore what’s next for this revolution in biotechnology, and the steps governments should take to support it.
