Healthy Longevity Webinar Series 2023
The NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, together with Prof. Brian Kennedy and Prof. Andrea Maier are proud to be hosting the Healthy Longevity webinar series.

In this Healthy Longevity series, we envision a gamut of disciplines from academic research to industrial markets to address critical healthcare concerns in the world today. These strategies broadly include (but are not limited to):
* Surpassing treatment of individual diseases to healthspan and lifespan extension
* Veering the focus of managing isolated diseases to preventing multiple diseases..

Ageing is the primary driver of chronic diseases in older and elderly individuals. Poor ageing is characterized by reduced or impaired function of multiple organ systems, including the cardiorespiratory, metabolic, immune and musculoskeletal systems.

The current model of clinical medicine is reactive and disease-centric, focusing on secondary and tertiary treatment of age-related diseases. With the burgeoning ageing populations across the world, including Singapore, this prevailing approach may not be the most efficient method of alleviating the current health care burden.

Healthcare cost is a ticking time bomb for ageing!

This virtual series will bring together highly-esteemed and prominent speakers from a wide range of fields associated with ageing, spanning from large and small biotech industries to academic institutions. You will hear revolutionary insights from experts on the growing and evolving science of ageing. As well, be informed of the prospects of combatting and preventing the debilitating ageing process through multi-disciplinary and integrated approaches aimed at extending both healthspan and lifespan.

We cordially invite you to join us in this exciting line-up of events. Hope to see you then.

Host: Prof Brian Kennedy
Distinguished Professor in Biochemistry and Physiology @NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine
Prof Brian Kennedy is the Director of the Healthy Longevity Translational Research Programme at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Director at the Centre for Healthy Longevity of National University Healthcare System (NUHS). Prof Kennedy has been at the forefront of ageing research in the past two decades and has made significant contributions to our basic understanding of ageing biology. His current efforts focus on bringing lab-proven science and health extending molecules to the clinic, such that “Healthy Longevity” medicine is going to be available for everyone in the near future.
Host: Prof Andrea Maier
Oon Chiew Seng Professor in Medicine, Healthy Ageing and Dementia Research @NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine
Prof Andrea B Maier, MD, is the Co-Director at the Centre for Healthy Longevity, National University Health System (NUHS). Throughout her 15-year career, Prof Maier has contributed tremendously to the clinical and biological understanding of human ageing and age-related diseases. Her current focus is to develop Longevity Medicine as a clinical and academic discipline by enabling the acceleration of basic science towards human trials and clinic practice. With her research and leadership, healthy longevity will not only exist as a lab-proven concept but will soon become part of everyone’s life.
Guest Speaker: Professor Tzipi Strauss (9 February 2023)
Director of Neonatology @Sheba Medical Center
Tzipi Strauss, MD, has been the Director of Neonatology at Sheba Medical Center for 10 years. The ministry of health has awarded her department prizes for excellence for the past six years. In addition to being a physician, Prof. Strauss is an alumni of Harvard with a Master’s in Health Care Management. In the past few years she has chosen to extend her knowledge to longevity. Prof. Strauss trained in anti-aging and aesthetics at the London clinic of Dr. Jean Louis Sebagh, a world-renowned specialist in the field of aesthetics, while staying true to the motto of “Less is more”. She also studied at the London School of Aesthetics.
Guest Speaker: Professor Paul Robbins (16 February 2023)
Associate Director, Institute on the Biology of Ageing and Metabolism @University of Minnesota
Dr. Robbins received his B.A. from Haverford College, his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley and then worked as a post-doctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Richard Mulligan at the Whitehead Institute at MIT. He was an Assistant, Associate and then full Professor of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine as well as Director of Basic Research for the Molecular Medicine Institute and Co-Director of the Paul Wellstone Cooperative Muscular Research Center. He then was a Professor of Molecular Medicine at Scripps Research in Jupiter, Florida and Director of the Center on Aging. He currently is a Professor of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics and Associate Director of the Institute on the Biology of Aging and Metabolism at the University of Minnesota. His current research is focused on developing therapeutic approaches to extend health span.
