Behind the science: Age research – The end of aging?

June 19, 2024 | 18:00-20:00

Collin Ewald will provide an overview of the latest research on aging, followed by a panel discussion featuring Michaela Kneissel and Michael Schindhelm. Together with Collin Ewald, they will explore whether we have entered the era of agelessness.

The discussion will delve into current research debates that investigate ways to slow down age-related diseases such as cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer's, and cardiovascular conditions. The central question is whether maintaining our health can lead to significantly longer lifespans.

The exhibition "The End of Aging" at the Kulturstiftung Basel H. Geiger serves as a catalyst for this conversation, highlighting the intersection and potential collaboration between art and science. This interface aims to make scientific dialogues and approaches more accessible to the public.

This event will be held in English.
