First global urolithin A summit set to highlight latest aging research

Full-day virtual experience will explore research on mitochondria, the cell’s powerhouse, and Urolithin A, a potent postbiotic.

Today sees the first global Urolithin A Scientific Summit. Organised by Timeline, the summit is set to present new research in the field of longevity, exploring the latest science around Urolithin A, a postbiotic natural molecule that has the potential to target several of the most important hallmarks of aging.

Featuring numerous experts in the scientific community, the virtual summit, which is open to the general public, practitioners and scientists, will explore topics ranging from immunity to cognition and from skin aging to reproductive longevity.

The impressive line-up of researchers and clinicians includes Professor Johan Auwerx, MD PhD (Swiss Federal Technology Institute EPFL), Professor Brian Kennedy, PhD (National University of Singapore), Professor Eric Verdin, MD PhD (President of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging), Professor Coleen Murphy, PhD (Princeton University), Professor Navindra Seeram, PhD (University of Rhode Island), Dr Dominic Denk, MD (Goethe-University Hospital Frankfurt), Dr Nicola Vannini (University of Lausanne/Ludvig Cancer Institute) and Professor Evandro Fang, PhD (Oslo University).

Timeline, the company organizing the summit, has invested over 15 years of pioneering work in longevity research that has been instrumental in making this molecule accessible to people as a safe and effective health product. The daylong event will feature topics grounded in science and rooted in mitochondrial health including mitophagy, biological aging, metabolic disease, brain aging and Alzheimer’s, longevity interventions and athletic performance and recovery.

Aging is associated with a decline in mitochondrial function, which can lead to reduced exercise capacity, muscle endurance and strength.
