Description

Free Public Lecture presented by Prof. dr. dr. Andrea Maier, Divisional Director, Medicine and Community Care, Royal Melbourne Hospital, followed by refreshments.

How to stay healthy for longer?

Professor Andrea Maier presents on the cellular basis of ageing and how to change the script

Ageing is a hot topic. Our life expectancy is steadily increasing. However, the majority of people are growing older while suffering from age related diseases.

Ageing is the most powerful risk factor for age related diseases and we can do something about it: we can turn back the clock! While interfering in ageing mechanisms it turned out that animals live up to 100% longer in a healthy state. Prof Maier will not only describe the emerging field of anti-ageing drugs but also how positive lifestyle choices and preventive medical interventions can help us live healthier for longer.
