The Scientific Committee

Alberto Beretta

Solongevity Chairman e Scientific Chief Officer

In the last twenty years we have seen an impressive increase in knowledge about the causes of ageing. I founded SoLongevity by bringing together a group of colleagues, researchers and clinicians who share the same goal: to bring this knowledge, the most innovative technologies and the latest research results on longevity in clinical practice. To address the challenges that the passage of time imposes on us well in advance.

Mario Clerici

Full Professor of Immunology and Immunopathology, University of Milan

Healthy aging is the result of three factors: genetics, lifestyle and inflammation. The last two are modifiable and I have devoted part of my work to their study, because I believe that the possibility of delaying the development of chronic disabling diseases is of fundamental importance in an ageing society. SoLongevity’s mission is to facilitate this goal by integrating different approaches in a holistic way. There is no other such reality.

Valentina Bollati

Associate Professor, Department of Clinical and Community Sciences, EPIGET Lab, State University of Milan

The environment – i.e. any stimulus that comes to us from the outside world – plays a central role in this process and can, in fact, slow it down or accelerate it. The SoLongevity project will allow to evaluate these aspects in a quantitative way, looking for those factors that are able to modulate the epigenetic mechanisms for the benefit of our health.

Francesca Baglio

Doctor Neurologist, IRCCS S. Maria Nascente, Don Gnocchi Foundation in Milan

The brain has the capability to create alternative neuronal pathways when the main ones stops working. Within SoLongevity, I am in charge of the neurocognitive protocol, which consists of personalized screening and training. The goal is to enhance brain connectivity, increasing the brain’s ability to stimulate and use its alternative pathways to fight ageing decline.
