Join Dr. George M. Martin live on April 16 from the University of Washington, as he shares his perspectives on the tremendous advancements in biological understanding achieved in the last 30 years.

Dr. Martin received his BS and MD degrees from the University of Washington and has been a member of its faculty since 1957. His research has centered on genetic approaches to the study of aging and age-related diseases, with a focus on what he has characterized as segmental progeroid syndromes, virtually all of which were shown to support a major role for genomic instability as a fundamental mechanism of aging.

Dr. Martin has received countless honors for his research and election to the National Academy of Medicine.  He has also served as president of the Tissue Culture Association, the Gerontological Association of America, and the American Federation for Aging Research.

We don’t want to just do lifespan. The period of your lifespan that’s healthy: That’s where the action should be.”
