Do Long-Living Genes Exist? Biogerontologist Alexandr Kolyada to Reveal the Secret at Biohacking Conference Moscow
Genes are the parts of DNA that define the traits of the living organisms and can be inherited. They determine the organization of the body, skin color, metabolism peculiarities, proneness to various diseases and even the athletic capabilities. But do genes influence the lifespan?
Biogerontology scientist Alexandr Kolyada will share more details on this on September 19 at Biohacking Conference Moscow. He will deliver a presentation titled “Biological age markers”.
- what humanity knows about the aging mechanisms;
- which genes allow people to live longer;
- what aging markers exist: what can be done in the lab today and what will be possible in the future.
Alexandr Kolyada is a genetic scientist, biogerontologist and a science thought leader. His research interests focus on the human aging genetics.
Speaker is a research associate at the lab of epigenetics at the Institute of Gerontology at the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine, and is a Head of HumanDna-Lab project. Also, he’s an expert at EMET Medicine – an educational center of medical cosmetology and minimal invasive surgery. Provides lectures and participates in various TV and radio shows, telling about the genetics, aging and prolongation of life.
In 2017, Alexandr launched a Diagen lab, conducting genetics research and scientific experiments in molecular genetics and diagnostics segment.
Today Diagen offers a wide range of services, including a DNA test, composing a genetic diet plan, identification of individual skin specifics, and detection of proneness to various diseases. Also, the lab hosts lectures and workshops for doctors and molecular diagnostics specialists.
