Ageless: the science of getting old without getting older
The Royal Institution of Great Britain, 21 Albemarle Street, London, W1S 4BS / on-line
Time: 7.00pm to 8.30pm
Ageing is not a biological inevitability. Scientists are studying every aspect of the body which could lead to treatments that could slow down, or even stop, the ageing process.
Join Andrew Steele as he discusses what happens as we age, practical ways we can help slow down the process and the fascinating research being carried out today.
In this talk, discover how understanding the scientific implications of ageing could lead to the greatest revolution in the history of medicine. One that has the potential to transform the human condition.
Doors to the theatre will open at 6.30pm. The event will begin at 7.00pm.
The live stream will go live at 6.55pm, and the introduction will begin at 7.00pm. If you register but miss the live stream, the video will be available to you via the same link for up to a week after the event date.
Andrew Steele is a London-based scientist, writer and presenter.
After completing a PhD in Physics, he decided to make the unusual leap to biology as he saw understanding ageing as the greatest humanitarian mission of our time. A recent Research Fellow at the Francis Crick Institute in London, he has used computers to decode our DNA and unravel the secrets hidden in some of modern biology’s biggest data.
He has featured in or on the Guardian, Sky News, The One Show, and Discovery’s Impossible Engineering and Through the Wormhole, BBC Radio 4’s Inside Science and Newshour.
His latest book ‘AGELESS: The New Science of Getting Older Without Getting Old‘ is available from Amazon and all good bookstores.
