The 2018 Chulalongkorn Asian Heritage Forum: Culture of Longevity is organized by the Institute of Thai Studies, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Science, and the College of Population Studies, at Chulalongkorn University.  This forum will be held in August 15th at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Bangkok.  

As leading expert on aging and mental health and with extensive research on these issues Sergei Scherbov was invited keynote speaker of this forum on “New look at Aging.”  H.R.H Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn will preside over the opening ceremony and listen to the talk. 

For many years Scherbov together with Warren Sanderson have developed new measures of age and aging in demographic research. They suggest to broaden research methods to account for significant increases in life expectancy, as the focus on chronological age of people alone provides a limited picture of the process, one that is often not appropriate for either scientific study or policy analysis. Their groundbreaking results have been published in Nature and Science and other high level journals. Scherbov is also PI of the Reassessing Ageing from a Population Perspective (Re-Ageing) project at IIASA that, among other things, ascertains the extent to which advanced societies are actually aging in multiple dimensions, including health, cognitive abilities, and longevity.
