“The calibre of speaker is just about as good as is possible and we really hope that people can have an excellent social experience with us as well,” he said.

“Longevity is rapidly becoming the field of focus of this century but is still in infancy and so full of excitement and opportunity. At any event like this the talks on stage from the most eminent scientists exploring the ‘possible’ is only matched by the social meetings between participants and attendees alike that can open the door to all manner of wonderful collaborations.”

O’Dea feels that while longevity has become a broad church, focus is still key.

“In some ways longevity’s breadth can be seen as including all ways for individuals to stay as well as they can into their futures,” he explained. “This of course includes health monitoring and informed interventions, but also there is the need for basic research to make progress on the as yet unanswered problems. While our event is conscious of the broad endeavours that can fall under that umbrella of longevity our focus is on those more challenging harder problems.”
