Dr. Kris Verburgh is a medical doctor and an expert in aging and longevity, and in new developments in medicine and biotechnology. He is a researcher at the Free University of Brussels, and faculty member at Singularity University Benelux, where he teaches about the future of medicine and longevity.
He is a partner at a $100 million fund that invests in new technologies to address aging. He wrote his first science book when he was 16 years old, and by age 28 he had written four science books.
He has given talks on health, longevity, new developments in medicine and biotechnology everywhere in the world, for organizations including the European Parliament, Cambridge University, and international companies and banks.
As a medical doctor, he has a keen interest in aging (biogerontology), metabolism (diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative diseases, obesity) and neuroscience.
Verburgh is co-founder of NOVOS, the first science-based nutraceutical to address 9 important hallmarks of aging.
Verburgh wrote 4 books by the age of 28. He wrote his first science book at the age of 16. His second book, a 520-page book about the theory of evolution and neuroscience, addresses philosophical questions using scientific insights. His last book “The Longevity Code” explains how nutrition and new biotechnologies can slow down aging and improve health.
“Dr. Verburgh tackles age-old questions and arrives at some startling conclusions – with practical suggestions for how to slow down our biological clock.”
– Professor David Ludwig, Harvard University and Harvard Medical School, about “The Longevity Code”
