How do science and innovation help providing new therapies for healthy aging ? Researchers and AXA experts share their insights in this second chapter of the AXA Research Guide “Silver Age, Aging Better”.
As life expectancy increases, so too are certain critical diseases that are often very debilitating for the elderly - cardiovascular, chronic, neurodegenerative diseases… Scientists and doctors face a major challenge: how can innovation foster better aging ?
Exploring and innovating through transdisciplinarity
What if transversality held one of the keys to innovation? The exponential advances in science and technology today will undoubtedly change the understanding of these diseases and erase the boundaries between science and medicine. The AXA Research Fund supports projects at the interface of several disciplines, which focus on both fundamental research and technological innovation, and which combine the expertise of biologists, doctors, physicists, engineers... With a common goal: to provide innovative responses to new health issues related to aging. Whether related to the creation of new approaches to care, or to the design of new medical tools that are ever more precise and efficient.
Through the “Silver Age: Aging Better” guide, the AXA Research Fund presents the work of three researchers :
All this research will help deliver renewed innovation perspectives for a more personalized, precise, targeted, connected and scalable medicine.
