Healthy Aging at Culture Night in Copenhagen

This upcoming Friday, October 9, 2015, there is Culture Night in Copenhagen!

The Center for Healthy Aging out of Copenhagen University is offering insight into the latest research from a multitude of different angles – there is something for everyone.

The Copenhagen Medical Museum offers a complete inside look into man: in medical science material. You can meet a scientist who talks about age research – down to the cellular level. You can also measure your muscles’ age, with two simple tests and find your general level compared to the 18,000 participants in a large scientific study.

The University of Copenhagen‘s old, beautiful rooms at Frue Plads’s will feature Culture Night’s tours and live jazz in the café. This is where the three researchers from the Center for Healthy Aging will participate in a game of Science Slam. They each have just four minutes each to make their research understandable! The three brave researchers, each with their own research-based speech that we all grow old – so how can we get it in the best possible way? Afterwards there is the opportunity for questions and comments from the audience.

You can meet:

Rikke Lund – associate professor at the Center for Healthy Aging and the Department of Public Health

Bjarke Oxlund – associate professor at the Center for Healthy Aging and the Department of Anthropology

Andreas Vigelsø Hansen – PhD at the Center for Healthy Aging and Biomedical Sciences

You can experience Science Slam at 19:45 and again at 21:15 on October 9th.
