Author Insight: The State of Aging Research (2017): Drs. Linda Partridge & Brian Kennedy



December 21, 2021

In 2017, the 2nd Interventions in Aging Conference on "Understanding Mechanisms & Compressing Morbidity in Aging Humans" was held in Cancun, Mexico. The co-chairs of this conference, and speakers in this Aging (Aging-US) video, are Drs. Dame Linda Partridge DBE, FRS, FRSE, FMedSci, and Brian Kennedy Ph.D. Dr. Partridge is currently the Weldon Professor of Biometry in the Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment at the University College London (UCL), Director of UCL's Institute of Healthy Ageing, and the Founding Director of the Max Planck Institute for the Biology of Ageing. Dr. Kennedy is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Physiology at the National University of Singapore (NUS)'s Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine. Dr. Kennedy is also Director of the National University Health System (NUHS) Centre for Healthy Ageing in Singapore, Professor at the Buck Institute for Research on Ageing, Adjunct Professor at the University of Southern California's Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, and Affiliate Faculty in Department of Biochemistry at the University of Washington. In this video, these two prominent researchers briefly discussed the state of aging research in 2017, and postulated what the future of aging interventions may look like.

Topics in Aging-US go beyond traditional gerontology, including, but not limited to, cellular and molecular biology, human age-related diseases, pathology in model organisms, signal transduction pathways (e.g., p53, sirtuins, and PI-3K/AKT/mTOR, among others), and approaches to modulating these signaling pathways.
