AgeLab’s Joe Coughlin Speaks at Berlin Wall 25th Anniversary

Wed, 11/12/2014

AgeLab Director Joseph Coughlin was selected to speak at Falling Walls on the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Sponsored by the German Government, the Falling Walls celebration recognized 17 scientists and thought leaders from around the world as working on the next ‘wall to fall’ on the frontier of science and society. Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the day that included the 17 keynotes. Coughlin’s keynote, "Living Longer, Living Better", addressed how longevity will require us to rewrite our social contract with society as well as change the role of technology in how we will live as 100 years of life becomes the new normal.
