What is the secret to a long, happy life? We bring together three eminent scientists whose research is helping to extend our years spent in good health.

What are the scientifically proven changes to your lifestyle that will reduce the risk of diseases of ageing? And how will emerging treatments prevent your decline, and even stop ageing ‘in its tracks’?

We are in the midst of a quiet revolution in the science of longevity. Harnessing the power of genomics and artificial intelligence, we are learning to fight back against the causes of dementia and the other diseases we each fear, reducing the long-term risks to our health – whatever our age.

This isn’t an evening of speculation and empty promises. We’ve gathered the world’s most renowned scientists to explore the future of human health. Hosted by health innovation evangelist Tina Woods, who is helping to build the UK’s National Strategy to help deliver 5 extra years of healthy life expectancy to all citizens by 2035, you’ll meet…

Award-winning Oxford Professor Lynne Cox, an expert in the biological mechanisms of ageing and one of the world leaders in developing new ways of stopping cellular senescence (cell death);

Professor Nir Barzilai, who runs the world’s biggest centre for the study of the biology of ageing, where he is trialing a drug to help us live longer, healthier lives based on his studies of the genetics of the world’s longest-living populations;

And psychologist, neuroscientist and bestselling author Dr Sabina Brennan, whose research at Trinity College Dublin focuses on brain health and how to prevent decline in cognitive function.

Don’t miss this evening of insight into the new science that will help you to live a longer, healthier -and hopefully happier- life.
