A longstanding and fundamental question is whether the aging process marches forward with time, or whether it can be stopped or even reversed. Three UCLA faculty who are leaders in different branches of biology are addressing this question through innovative approaches, resulting in exciting discoveries such as the existence of an “epigenetic aging clock” and “longevity metabolites” — as well as the development of interventions that may have the potential to dramatically extend human healthspans and lifespans.

Following presentations and discussions, attendees will be invited to ask questions of the speakers during a moderated Q&A.
