Many of today's children will live for a century or longer. Which factors will affect their longevity? Will they be happy, healthy and productive
Emerging science and medical technologies provide many clues regarding the future of aging, but changing demographics and economics have also begun to influence society's views. Beyond doubt, each of us will face new levels of scientific complexity in this new world. This Spring, the College of Science will present six free lectures on the effects of long life, addressing the opportunities and costs of the new longevity, the biology of aging, the effects of aging on the brain, regenerative medicine, the impact on global populations, and the increasing intimacy between informatics and the aged.
At Centennial Hall on the campus of the University of Arizona. Parking is available on a pay per use basis in the Tyndall Avenue Garage. All lectures begin at 7:00 PM and are free to the public. Call 520-621-4090 for more information.
