Longevity.Technology: Kirkland, Rando, Barzilai, Maier, Zhavoronkov, Verdin, Mannick… the Sheba Longevity Conference has bagged some longevity A-listers who will be discussing senescence, geroscience, global longevity, aging clocks and more.

Evelyne Bischof on…
The conference will attract both superstars and rising stars in longevity medicine, both clinically and scientifically, and of course in the fields of technology and investments. We are honored to have a variety of extremely brilliant KOLs and people who are respected in the longevity field.
While the speakers will inform on the newest research and the newest clinical developments in the field of longevity, it will be accessible to all, as we have an audience that includes students, policy makers, those involved in governance and the general public, as well as clinicians and scientists. We’ll be discussing the whole spectrum of longevity, considering what it is as well as what it is not.
A global road-map for longevity
The idea of bringing longevity into the public hospitals, the public clinics and then hopefully, as a next step, into the healthcare system is something that is a part of the global roap-map – not just Israel, but rolling out to other countries as well.
We have an excellent team of doctors, clinicians, professors and therapists has has been working on protocols that cover the core areas that we decided to implement first in the center – cognition, metabolism, nutrition and so on. The next step will be to expand the protocols, implementing strategies towards interventions, while continually conducting research. Technology, innovation and education will all be integral parts of what we do.
Education is key
The clinic is very closely affiliated with Tel Aviv University, so we’ll be bringing longevity medicine into the med school curriculum and educating medical students, doctors, residents, &c
