Bill Andrews, Ph.D. talks at the Institute for Advanced Telomere Medicine Conference in Tokyo

September 5, 2017

Aging is a complex topic that has been at the center of attention of many scientists for centuries. That's also what Bill Andrews, Ph.D., has made his challenge to solve.

But what is aging? We age because our cells age. Every time our cells divide our telomeres get shorter and shorter until our cells can no longer divide and become senescent.

Aging is the cause of many diseases: substantial research suggests that controlling telomere length has the potential to treat most of these debilitating diseases.  

In this fascinating presentation Dr. Bill explains how his research will lead to cures that will change the way we live our lifes, forever.
