Who wants to live forever? [APRIL 15 POSTPONED]

Longevidade: Regeneração, Precisão, Implicações Sociais


Following Culturgest's activity suspension (more informations here), the conferences schedule for April 15 have been postponed to June 23, at the same schedule.


Research in regenerative medicine and genetics, the individualisation of healthcare and the accuracy of diagnoses takes us to the possibility of prolonging our lifetime. What knowledge and techniques are being applied? What transformations do they bring to the way in which we care for and protect our health? What economic and social implications may occur? What are the biological and ethical limits of this search for a perpetual life?

In this lecture cycle, we will be looking for answers to these and other questions and revealing the challenges that we face, in order to welcome the contribution of those people who are living for longer.
