As a special thank you to our monthly patrons, the Lifespan Heroes, we are pleased to announce that we have launched a new series of exclusive webinars where you can join researchers live, listen to discussion panels, and take part in Q&A sessions. This is the ideal place to meet the actual scientists working on ending age-related diseases and ask them about their exciting research.
Lifespan Heroes are all given the opportunity to join these webinars; on the day of each webinar, we send participation information to their Lifespan.io registration emails.
We record all of our webinars and offer our monthly patrons, the Lifespan Heroes, early access to the recordings for a few months prior to public broadcast. If you would like to see these recordings ahead of public release or would even like to join us live for future webinars you can learn more about becoming a Lifespan Hero here.
Here are some clips from the MitoSENS webinar, which was recorded on January 28, 2019. It was hosted by Dr. Oliver Medvedik and features Dr. Aubrey de Grey, Dr. Matthew O’Connor, Michael Rae, and Dr. Amutha Boominathan from the SENS Research Foundation as guests. Damage to mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is thought to be one of the reasons we age and is a highly challenging problem for science to solve; the MitoSENS team from the SENS Research Foundation is developing a therapy to solve this problem.
AGING AND THE MICROBIOME CLIPS
Our second webinar took place on Monday, April 8th at 1 PM EST. It was hosted by Dr. Oliver Medvedik with Dr. Mike Lustgarten, Dr. Amy Proal, and Dr. Cosmo Mielke as guests. They discussed the microbiome, which has increasingly been implicated in aging and the development of age-related diseases.
