Wellness and Prevention for the Third Half of Life with Hans Parge 

When we are very young, we always want to be older to become part of the promised land which adulthood seems to be to our immature minds and imaginations. Often the time never arrives when we feel sufficiently old – and young enough – to feel really happy. Very soon we  feel too old, women often earlier than men. No boyfriend at age 20? Begin a career in classical music at 35? Going back to work after the children are grown after 40? A new meaningful job at 50? And the ageism considerations persist for all our lives.

Staying YOUNG seems to be the answer. Everyone tries to look as young as possible. We hide our wrinkles behind layers of makeup and even do lifting in order to hide our real age. And if we really do feel better with that sort of thing, why not?

Isn’t it all about getting older and feeling well. We can do many things to keep us healthy and beautiful, by internal growth, but also with the help of external treatments.

Hans Parge will share his knowledge based on scientific research where, for example, treatment of the skin with certain anti-aging cremes is included. And is there still the hope for a pill which keeps us eternally young?

Hans Page presents himself:

How far does one go back? I guess the beginning is always a good place to start. So here goes: I was born in Cologne Germany to German parents. My mother was a radiologist and father a businessman in the wholesale food industry. We immigrated to Ireland in the early 1960’s.

Trinity College Dublin was responsible for my higher education. There I graduated with a BA in physical chemistry and a PhD in x-ray crystallography. My post doctoral research focused on determining the atomic structures of proteins, the molecules of life.

In 1993 I was fortunate to secure a position as a senior scientist in a startup pharmaceutical company pioneering the application of x-ray crystallographic protein structure determination to the drug discovery process. The company was called Agouron Pharmaceuticals and the technology Structure Based Drug Design (SBDD).

In 2000 Agouron, then a subsidiary of Warner Lambert, became the La Jolla research site for Pfizer Inc. I remained with the company till, in 2009, I was retired from, my position as director of crystallography, and into the world of health, wellness, proactive prevention and youthful-aging.

In the years since I’ve moved into my 60’s, have formed a life/health consulting business called Reset Aging With Science and work on the goal of dying young as late in life as possible.
