«Why do we age, and why are so many different neurodegenerative diseases associated with later stages of life? Can we live longer and prosper under better conditions? Rick Morimoto has played a leading role in addressing these questions, linking basic cellular research with essential public health issues. He will share with us the understanding and vision that he has gained over the years of his enthusiastic quest.»
