About the event
The summit aims to inspire people to share a range of perspectives and explore ways to accelerate rejuvenation research. Ultimately, the goal is to help speed up the availability of this upcoming technology in the healthcare system.
The summit hopes to go beyond longer healthier life. It wants to improve quality of life in Africa and show it has much to contribute on the global stage.
But defeating age-related disease and promoting longer healthy life will require a joint global effort. Improving current approaches to scientific research by augmenting them with new technologies is a must to achieve this goal.
To that end, the summit will be focusing on convergence, investment, innovation, translation, and finding ways to collaborate and drive progress.
The event will include the following:
- Keynote presentations
- Panel Discussions
- Investors Sessions
- Parallel and Postal presentations
