Speaker information

Dr Luigi Ferrucci, Director of the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging

Over the last few years research on the biology of aging has made unprecedented progresses and has grown into an essential branch of science. Technology is now available that allows candidate biological mechanisms of aging to be assessed in humans. At the same time, geriatricians and gerontologists are developing robust measures of susceptibility and resilience that can be collected in clinical populations. In most cases, these areas of research evolved as separate entities unlikely to collide. Future progress in understanding human aging will require biologists, population scientists, gerontologists and geriatricians to find a common language and start operating as multidisciplinary team.
