The Longevity World Forum will be held soon in the Conference Centre on the 7th and 8th of November. The city of Valencia will become a meeting point for the scientific community, both at a national and international level, since this is the first gathering in Europe that will address topics of current interest such as longevity, genomics and precision medicine.

#Longevity18 is an initiative promoted by the consulting firm from Valencia Talentum Group; the company Medigene Press, which publishes the journal Genética Médica News; and the international company Cambridge Precision Medicine. The organizing partners explain that the purpose of this event is to create a meeting point for all the actors involved in the study of life expectancy and improvement of the quality of life.
