The Valencia Conference Center will host on November 14 and 15 the world event of the year in terms of longevity and healthy aging: Longevity World Forum, sponsored by IMDEA Food, among other entities

“Longevity World Forum was born as a meeting point for the scientific, academic and industry communities, so that specialists from different fields can share their advances on human longevity, as well as develop new therapies with the aim of increasing the life expectancy and improve its quality ”, as detailed on their website.

Broadly speaking, it is a pioneering congress at a global level where the latest scientific advances in human longevity will be addressed, whose objective is to improve the quality of life and the prevention of diseases related to aging.

The Longevity World Forum will bring together numerous world leaders from the scientific community and leading professionals in the sectors involved, who will do a sharing around different round tables. This will be the case of, for example, Manuel Serrano (PhD & ICREA professor – Institute Research in Biomedicine in Barcelona and Precision Nutrition and Aging Program Director at IMDEA Food) or Rafael de Cabo (Chief of the Translational Gerontology Branch at the National Institute of Aging, Baltimore and Group Leader of Nutritional Interventions at IMDEA Food), among others.

The 2019 edition is divided into four main thematic streams:

Knowing Longevity: An exposition of the most advanced research currently being done in the field of longevity.
Innovation in longevity R + D + i – The role of the industry: space for leading companies in the field of longevity, which will explain the services they are already offering, the applications for different diseases and the treatments available for patients.
Socio-economic aspects of longevity – Towards a longer society: analysis of the social and economic effects, both advantages and challenges, implied by a society with an increasing life expectancy.
