Cheltenham Science Festival 2012
3 April 2012
"A baby born tonight will live on average five hours longer than a baby born last night. Why and how is life expectancy increasing so quickly? How much of this extended life will be in good health? What do we really understand about the mechanisms of ageing?"
Drs David Gems and Matt Piper will be speaking on this topic at the Cheltenham Science Festival on 15th June. The festival is held annually as an open to the general public event where over 300 of the world's greatest thinkers, comedians, writers and scientists come together to celebrate and explore all things scientific.
