The 25th Annual World Congress

Join us from December 14-16 for our upcoming 25th Annual World Congress in Las Vegas. This conference marks a quarter of a century since A4M began its original mission: to build awareness and deliver innovative, cutting-edge scientific education focused on longevity, and prolonging the human lifespan. Our audiences span the globe, and our renowned speakers, keynotes, and impressive faculty panels assist attendees in implementing and integrating new therapies into practice.

Relax at the luxurious Venetian and Palazzo Resort, a five-diamond luxury hotel and casino resort located on the Las Vegas Strip. Earn your required CMEs while partaking in some of the city's best nightlife, restaurants, shopping, and architecture.

Pablos Holman


Pablos Holman is a self-described futurist, inventor, and notorious hacker with a unique view into breaking and building new technologies. Holman’s résumé includes global consultations on invention and design projects that assimilate the most recent and cutting-edge technologies, including the world’s smallest PC, 3-D printers, and the Hackerbot: a Wi-Fi seeking robot.

Holman currently works for Nathan Myhrvold at the Intellectual Ventures Laboratory, spearheading the creation of a wide variety of futuristic invention projects. These endeavors include a fission reactor powered by nuclear waste, a machine designed to suppress hurricanes, a system to reverse global warming, and a device that can shoot mosquitoes out of the sky with lasers to help eradicate malaria.

Holman has informed and lectured audiences on invention, innovation, cyber security, and the future of technology at world-renowned technology summits, including the United Nations, the World Economic Forum at Davos, The CIA, TEDx and DEF CON.

Valter Longo, PhD

Valter Longo,

Dr. Longo is the Edna M. Jones Professor of Gerontology and Biological Sciences, and Director of the Longevity Institute at the University of Southern California – Davis School of Gerontology, Los Angeles. He is also a Senior Group Leader at the International Foundations of Medicine (IFOM) and holds four professorships across top EU academic centers.

Dr. Longo’s studies focus on the fundamental mechanisms of aging in simple organisms, mice and humans. The Longo laboratory has identified several genetic pathways that regulate aging in simple organisms and reduce the incidence of multiple diseases in mice and humans. His laboratory also described both dietary and genetic interventions that could reverse the course of Diabetes and Alzheimer’s and protect cells and improve the treatment of cancer and other diseases in mammals. Dr. Longo’s most recent studies are on dietary interventions that can affect stem cell-based regeneration to promote longevity in mice and humans. The Longevity Institute in Los Angeles, directed by Dr. Longo, includes over 40 faculty members focused on topics ranging from regeneration to dietary interventions aimed at improving health and lifespan in the near future. Among the accolades received by Dr. Longo are the 2010 Nathan Shock Lecture Award from the National Institute on Aging (NIA/NIH) and the 2013 Vincent Cristofalo “Rising Star” Award in Aging Research from the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR).

Dr. Longo is recognized as a global leader in aging and nutrition. With more than 106 peer reviewed publications in journals like Science, Nature, Cell, JAMA, Circulation, Cancer Cell, Journal of Translational Medicine, etc. He is recognized by Time Magazine, with three features in less than two years, as Longevity Guru. He is one of the most recently featured scientists by global media and news feeds. He has received in 2016 the Jubilee award by the Royal Scottish Academy.

Dr. Longo was born and raised in Genoa, Italy and received his undergraduate degree from the University of North Texas, where he majored in biochemistry with a minor in jazz performance. He received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 1997 and his postdoctoral training in the Neurobiology of Aging and Alzheimer’s Diseases at USC. He started his independent career in 2000 at the University of Southern California, School of Gerontology, one of the first and leading programs for aging research and education.

General Session Speakers

M. Marc Abreu, M.D

M. Marc Abreu,

Dr. Abreu is a medical doctor, ophthalmologist, anesthesiologist and physicist, who currently holds a post as clinical faculty at the Department of Anesthesiology of Yale University School of Medicine. He is also the Co-Director of the BTT Interdisciplinary Research Unit of Yale University.

He was previously a post-doctoral fellow and faculty at the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences of Yale School of Medicine as well as former faculty at Harvard Medical School. He was a recipient of several grants, including grants from the United States Department of Defense, Research to Prevent Blindness, and the Massachusetts Lions Research Fund. His previous accomplishments and scientific achievements include: while at Harvard developed advanced laser systems for the U.S. Air Force; patented opto-electromagnetic tonometric systems and licensed it to Nestl and its pharmaceutical unit, Alcon Laboratories; worked on spectroscopy culminating with the identification of the Radiation Signature of Glucose within the mid-infrared wavelength irradiated as thermal energy from the body. He discovered the BTT, which enabled noninvasive, continuous measurement of human brain temperature. His discovery was featured in a press release by Yale University, stating that for the first time in history brain temperature has been measured noninvasively and continuously. Dr. Abreu also developed the first FDA-approved computer system for continuous temperature measurement during surgery, intensive care and general monitoring in association with ASUS Corporation. This system utilizes a micro sensor positioned on the BTT skin surface that measures brain temperature. The device renders the most accurate and true body temperature without corrective factors found in other digital and infrared thermometers. He has also developed proprietary thermal measurement systems, devices and applications based on the BTT. Dr. Abreu is a pioneer in research on brain thermal signatures and has studied brain thermodynamics for two decades and invented technologies that resulted in multiple patents. The technology Dr. Abreu created helps medical professionals, employers, coaches and individuals capture brain thermal signatures, which can be used to prevent death from high or low body temperature, and has the potential to detect and manage a host of human conditions and diseases including Alzheimers disease, Parkinsons disease, and multiple sclerosis
