Liz Parrish - Curing Biological Aging

Dr. Bill Andrews, CEO of Sierra Sciences, and Liz Parrish, CEO of BioViva Sciences, discussed “A Cure for Aging?” at this year’s 10x Medical Device Conference.

Liz starts with a statistic: 100,000 people die of aging each day, noting, until recent history humans would die from infectious diseases. As science improves, so does our ability to live longer – until we die of complications from old age.

Can we cure these complications?

Yes, treating biological aging as a disease, Bill and Liz combined forces to create BioViva Fiji and are building a large-scale production facility and clinic to provide a gene-therapy approach to cure aging.

They expect human trials in a year’s time
