In 1988, a seminal observation was made in the genetics of aging. Aging was not inevitable. Using a simple model organism, the nematode worm C. elegans, scientists discovered that aging was plastic, and lifespan could be extended and manipulated using the genetic tools of the time. This breakthrough rippled throughout the scientific community, creating the foundation upon which the modern field of Geroscience was built. It’s been 30 years since this “golden age” of the genetics of aging, and the scientific community is poised to begin clinical trials targeting both diseases of aging and aging itself, based on fundamental observations generated over the last three decades. Please join us on December 3rd, 2018 at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, where we will celebrate both the exciting discoveries which have driven the modern field of Geroscience, as well as a peek into the not too distant future.
