500 years of medicine. The future: population and personalised healthcare

Join Sir Muir Gray as he examines the future of medicine in the context of an ageing population.

Join the Royal College of Physicians for a special free lecture, part of the season marking its 500th anniversary, reflecting on the history and future of medicine, society and health.

In this event, Sir Muir Gray looks at the future of medicine in the context of an ageing population, and examines the shift from a focus on life expectancy to healthy life expectancy.

Each year billions of pounds are being spent on regenerative and curative medicine, while the research-led hunt for an elixir of life continues. Yet a crucial question remains unanswered:

Do people really want to live to be 120?

Sir Muir will argue that all of us, both healthcare providers and individuals, have to be focussed on living better longer rather than simply living longer. The evidence exists that we can do this, but that we first have to understand what is happening inside us.
