The organisers of the Longevity World Forum, a pioneering congress at world level, have confirmed the thematic blocks for the contents of its second edition, which will take place on 14th and 15th November at the Palacio de Congresos (Conference Centre) of Valencia. Specifically, scientific innovation related to increased longevity and quality of life, as well as healthy aging, will be two of the main themes for the meeting in 2019.

Furthermore, the latest research currently underway in the field of longevity and the social and economic effects inherent to a society with an increasing life expectancy will be the other two subjects tackled during the two days, when internationally renowned professionals from the sectors involved in this matter will meet again.

The speakers will include, for example, Rafael de Cabo, chief of the Translational Gerontology Branch of the National Institute on Aging in Baltimore; Manuel Serrano, a doctor and professor who is currently working on the ICREA programme of the Institute for Research in Biomedicine of Barcelona (IRB Barcelona); and Álvaro Pascual-Leone, professor of Neurology at the Harvard Medical School, among others.

The Longevity World Forum has become established as the meeting point for the international scientific community, as well as for agents from academia and industry from different countries, whose work is closely related to increased life expectancy and healthy aging. The congress is supported by the Royal Academy of Medicine together with other public and private institutions of the bio-health and biotechnological sectors.
