The Buck is the world’s premier scientific research institute focused solely on the biology of aging. For more than 20 years our mission has been to end the threat of age-related disease to help people live better longer. Because the novel coronavirus disproportionately impacts adults over 60 we know that our expertise is critical, and that is why we have refocused the work of many of our labs to join the fight against COVID-19.
During this time of disruption, we are eager to lean into our scientific expertise to fight this virus – a fight which includes a commitment to provide the public with evidence-based information on health and disease.
Our ongoing event series, Conversations at the Buck brings together colleagues inside and outside of the Buck who have important perspectives on how to think about, deal with, and potentially treat this pandemic. We feel privileged to be able to share their insights with you in this special web series focused on COVID-19.
