Can Aging Be Reversed? The Latest in Anti-Aging Research and Therapeutics

January 16, 2020, 4:00 pm — 5:00 pm

Venture Café, Havana Room
4240 Duncan Ave
St. Louis, MO 63110

The Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS), in collaboration with Venture Café, is hosting Precision Medicine Series on the third Thursday of every month! This January, join us to hear two scholars from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Tim R. Peterson, PhD, Assistant Professor of Medicine and Genetics, and Shin-ichiro Imai, MD, PhD, Professor of Developmental Biology, discuss their cutting edge anti-aging research and therapeutics. Tim Peterson will be speaking about his research on the healthspan – the period of life that one is free from aging-associated conditions – and the development of anti-aging drugs that may increase the ratio of “young” to “old” genes. Shin-ichiro Imai will introduce the cutting edge front of aging/longevity research in his lab and discuss efforts to develop an anti-aging intervention using an NAD intermediate called nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN).
