Aging is the single greatest risk factor for developing Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other brain diseases. It slows down your body’s ability to repair itself, leaving your heart, bones, and cartilage at risk.

But what if we could rejuvenate tissues in aging bodies? What if we could prevent brain diseases by slowing down aging?

In this panel discussion, Gladstone scientists explain how their work on brain, heart, and stem cells have shed new light on the mechanisms of aging, and how this knowledge could one day be harnessed to alleviate and potentially cure age-related diseases.
