Aging: what’s your score?

Grow old and stay healthy: that’s anyone’s wish. While focusing on the definition of what constitutes healthy longevity, Dr. Maryam Kavousi seeks to identify the main prognostic factors for predicting an individual’s aging trajectory.
She will concentrate on the contribution of lifestyle factors and biomarkers of disease and frailty to obtain a healthy longevity “score.” Her research may contribute to filling the gap between the most advanced knowledge provided by aging research and future public policy.
