Why do we age? How long can we live? How does lifestyle interact with the aging process? 

These are a few of the questions addressed in a unique meeting arena featuring Nobel Laureates, experts and other curious minds during the Nobel Prize Dialogue in Tokyo on March 17.

The day explored new insights on the science of aging, how to address financial and societal challenges tied to changing population structures and how technology can help alleviate the burdens of old age. Key opinion leaders, policy makers, students, researchers and the general public gathered at the Pacifico Yokohama Conference Center, along with five Nobel Laureates, including Tasuku Honjo, the Japanese Medicine Laureate from 2018, to talk about why and how we age.

During the event, the audience listened to a discussion around the question of why we age with Professor Emeritus from Newcastle University Tom Kirkwood and Nobel Laureates Elizabeth H. Blackburn and Tim Hunt. ​
