Longevity briefs provides a short summary of novel research in biology, medicine, or biotechnology that caught the attention of our researchers in Oxford, due to its potential to improve our health, wellbeing, and longevity.
Camilla Cavendish is an award-winning writer and broadcaster, regular columnist for the Financial Times and she is also the author of ‘Extra Time: 10 lessons for an ageing world’. In the short exert from the interview, Camilla discusses revising the very notion of family, elderly support and retirement in order to deal with the growing elderly population.
In the full talk, Camilla talks about the challenges and opportunities the science of longevity will present to society in the near future. She also delves into her personal views on the nature of ageing and the journey that led her to writing Extra time. Camilla also discusses how global changing population demographics will impact societal and political life in the future, and how current inequalities in wealth may soon manifest into inequalities of medical care, resulting in a growing biological divide.
