Brian Kennedy, President and CEO, Buck Institute for Research on Aging

Video Overview

Professor Brian Kennedy opened the second session with a frank assessment of the unsustainable increases in healthcare spending already taking place as a result of population aging, especially in the USA – and the worrying lack of adequate strategic planning at a national and international level. Dr. Kennedy’s role as president and CEO of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging grants him a unique insight into the limitations of current funding models, which he leverages to evaluate newer approaches showing promise for accelerating the clinical translation of rejuvenation therapies.
