BIOGERONTOLOGY: CAN WE LIVE FOR EVER, AND SHOULD WE?

Foredrag ved Suresh Rattan

TORSDAG D. 18. NOVEMBER 2021
UNF Aarhus

Biogerontology is the science of understanding the biological basis of ageing and death. We know that sooner or later we will die; and if we live long enough, we will undergo a period of ageing and old age. When do we become old, can we stop ageing and death, and should we live for ever? Let us do some thinking and discussion about these issues together.
