After the incredible success of the 2018 Undoing Aging Conference earlier this year, we are getting closer to Undoing Aging 2019 and are looking forward to another brilliant get together in March 2019 with scientists from around the globe, who are leading the charge in maintaining and restoring full health in old age.
Today we are happy to begin introducing the speakers for Undoing Aging 2019, starting with Dr. Jerry Shay.
