Let's talk about...

Aging

Join Sanford Burnham Prebys in a special partnership with the Fleet Science Center for a lecture series on science connected to aging.

The incidence of most adult cancers increases dramatically with age. Recent research by Dr. Peter Adams and other researchers around the world has begun to shed light on the biological links between aging and disease. Their work is creating new opportunities to prevent and treat cancer as well as other age-associated diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. Join Dr. Adams as he presents the future direction of aging research.
