What is Longevity Science?

Longevity science is an interdisciplinary field focused on scientific principles aimed at extending the human lifespan and promoting healthy ageing. It further examines the effects of longevity on individuals and communities, drawing on research from various disciplines, including biology, genetics, medicine, pharmacy, public health, nutrition, psychology, and sociology. This novel field of study addresses the biological mechanisms underlying ageing, modern diagnostics, preventative measures, and the treatment of age-related diseases, as well as interventions to achieve healthy longevity, ranging from lifestyle-oriented approaches to complex medical treatments, including both current and emerging technologies. It also explores how healthcare systems can adapt to support longevity, the societal impacts of this healthcare revolution, methods for financing this change, and ensuring that additional healthy years are spent as productive and happy members of the community. The ultimate goal of longevity science is to improve quality of life and increase the number of healthy, productive years individuals can enjoy through advancements in longevity knowledge.
