Understanding the Mysteries of Aging: Treating Illnesses and Extending the Healthy Years

This Event Has Been Postponed

Brian Kennedy, Ph.D., President and CEO, the Buck Institute

Is aging the single biggest risk factor for many diseases? By working to slow the effects of aging and prevent or delay the disorders commonly associated with it – Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, cancer, arthritis, stroke, osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease, among others – Kennedy and Buck Institute scientists are focused on extending the healthy years of life so that growing older doesn’t have to mean growing ill.
