Dr Craig Willcox

Secrets of Living Longer (and healthier) from those that have Lived the Longest

A child born in London today has about a one-in-three chance of living to 100. Although good genes give one an excellent head start on the path to centenarian status, healthy or “successful” ageing is a life-long journey that requires wise decisions, as well as a little luck. Remaining healthy and independent, keeping cognitively sharp, and actively engaged with life are common themes when people are asked to talk about their ideal vision of “successful ageing”. Unfortunately, multi-morbidity and medications and weekly visits to the doctor are common in middle-age and beyond. Based upon his three decades of research on the world`s longest lived people, Dr. Willcox will talk about the relative importance of genes vs environment (including newly discovered longevity genes), the most effective “anti-ageing” strategies, and risk factor modelling that can predict ones healthy ageing trajectory.

About Dr Craig Willcox

Donald Craig Willcox, Ph.D. holds Professorships in Gerontology & Geriatric Medicine at Okinawa International University and University of Hawaii. He is Co-Principal Investigator of the Okinawa Centenarian Study and a Co-Investigator with the Kuakini Honolulu Heart Program studies of healthy ageing and longevity.

Currently focused upon nutritional, epidemiological and epigenetic approaches to successful ageing, and part of the research team that identified a gene important for human longevity (FOXO3), he is now working on bioactive substances that activate FOXO3 and its protective mechanisms. With nominations for Marquis’s Who’s Who in Healthcare and Medicine and Who’s Who in the World, Dr. Willcox is a much sought after speaker and consultant with regards to research and development of nutraceutical and cosmeceutical products that focus on healthy ageing.
