Special Hybrid Seminar (by invitation in person and limited online places)

School of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Medicine & Sciences, British Heart Foundation Centre of Research Excellence and Ageing Research at King's (ARK)

Epigenetic Clocks Connected to Cardiovascular and Metabolic Diseases

Keynote Speaker: Steve Horvath

Principal Investigator, Altos Labs, Cambridge, UK and Founder of the Epigenetic Clock Development Foundation

Prior to joining Altos, Steve Horvath was Professor of Human Genetics and Biostatistics at the University of California, Los Angeles. His research lies at the intersection of several fields including biogerontology, anti-aging clinical trials, epigenetic biomarkers of aging, epidemiology, systems biology, and comparative biology. In his presentation, Steve will discuss research from both human and animal studies that connect metabolic and cardiovascular diseases to epigenetic clocks. Epigenetic clocks have become valuable biomarkers for exploring the processes of aging and rejuvenation. Steve's recent publication in Nature Aging  provides further background about his research on epigenetic clocks.

The seminar will be hosted by Mauro Giacca, Head, School of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Medicine & Sciences (SCMMS), Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine and Richard Siow, Director of Ageing Research at King's (ARK). Steve Horvath will be joining the event online.
