Today, the Interventions to extend healthspan and lifespan 2018 conference has begun in Kazan, Russia. This is the fifth conference in this series and is a very important event for people who work in the field.

Elena Milova from LEAF is in Kazan and has already brought us a brief introduction to the event, which she streamed live to the Facebook page yesterday.

As you can see from the introduction video, there are a variety of influential speakers, including researchers, that will be giving talks during the next three days. There are also going to be three round-table discussions covering aging theory, practical longevity strategies, and our favorite: approaches to informing the public about the science and plausibility of rejuvenation biotechnology.

Elena will be giving a talk about messaging, how to gain wider public acceptance for the science, and certain aspects of the interactions between academia, science popularizers, representatives of the mass media, and the general public.

It is great to see another superb conference that brings the best researchers together, and the more events like this we have, the better for our community and the field in general.
