Alex Zhavoronkov on…
AARD is a must-see
This conference attracts the superstars that everyone wants to watch, everyone wants to listen to – it’s the Super Bowl of very credible, very translatable longevity research. All the superstars will be there, and we have new speakers coming as well – even all the way from Australia!
For the first time this year, we will have high-school students engaged as well, we’ll be providing career advice, explaining how to formulate your career in order to impact the longevity field the most.
Basle and big pharma:
Basle is one of those cities that are driving pharmaceutical innovation – maybe 20% of pharmaceutical innovation comes out of that city, and that’s where Roche and Novartis are headquartered. The conference was originally based there to connect with big pharma and make aging research very credible and connect big pharma with the top thought leaders in longevity research.
