What is Longevity?
Longevity is the science of anti-aging research and rejuvenation.
It has experienced an unprecedented advance over recent years, particularly with the discovery that the rate of aging is controlled, at least to some extent, by genetic pathways and biochemical processes.
Longevity identifies both lifestyle and pharmaceutical targets to improve the human health-span (i.e.the time we can live without any negative impact from aging.)
Longevity will be one of the largest, if not the largest, investment opportunity in the decades to come.
