Hi, I’m Gordon Lithgow.

I’m a scientist who is looking at ways we can make getting older- better! This doesn't have to be an oxymoron, I promise!

Scientists are not always good at getting out of the lab and communicating with real people but here at the Buck Institute in Marin, California, we are “Bucking” this norm and hosting a podcast!  We are going to be talking with amazing researchers from all around the world about their work on aging and their ideas about the future.

The name of the podcast is exactly how I feel- We aren’t getting any younger, yet

Check us out on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.
