Elixir of Age: Liz Parrish’s Deep Dive into Gene Therapy and Lifespan Leaps – Episode 218

Welcome to another episode of the Gladden Longevity Podcast with Dr. Jeffrey Gladden, Steve Reiter, and today’s guest, Liz Parrish! Elizabeth Parrish is the Founder and CEO of BioViva, a company committed to extending healthy lifespans using cell technologies. Liz is a humanitarian, entrepreneur, innovator, podcaster, and a leading voice for genetic cures.  As a strong proponent of progress and education for advancing regenerative medicine modalities, she serves as a motivational speaker to the public at large for the life sciences. She is actively involved in international educational media outreach. This podcast explores gene therapy’s potential to combat age-related diseases, aiming for accessibility and affordability. We highlight the reversal of aging in lab animals and argue against regulatory delays, advocating for prompt access to life-saving interventions. Advancing anti-aging gene therapies saves lives, reduces healthcare costs, and minimizes human suffering.
