What if we treated the underlying causes of ageing, rather than the symptoms? Could we turn back the clock and live longer, healthier lives?
Jim Mellon is a leading authority in longevity and sits on the Board of Trustees of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, and the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR). His bio-tech company, Juvanescense, focuses on the emerging commercial science of longevity, while his clean food company, Agronomics, invests in emerging food technologies and non-animal cultured meats, in response to a worldwide shift towards ‘clean meat’ and alternatives that are better for personal and planetary health.
In this talk, he shares a tantalising perspective of the future of the human race, the evolving landscape of supermarket shelves and the opportunities available for those who, like Jim, recognise the financial opportunities in these two nascent sectors; longevity and new agriculture.
Jim is joined in conversation by Lanserhof at The Arts Club practitioner, Dr Tamsin Lewis, who holds a post graduate qualification in psychiatry and specialises in The Biology of Ageing and applied Nutritional and Functional medicine.
