Specialists in research areas related to increasing human longevity will collaborate with those tackling the challenges of atomically-precise 3D structures and molecular machines, including construction pathways using biochemistry organic/inorganic chemistry, protein design, DNA objects, applied physics, molecular biology, computational chemistry, and engineering.

Areas to be addressed include malformed proteins, extracellular crosslinks, cell loss and atrophy, senescent cells, cancer, mitochondrial mutations, along with the roles of stem cells and gene therapy.

Participants will be specifically selected to participate due to unique perspectives on these topics arising from their research. We invite you to share this application with appropriate colleagues for consideration.
