Dr Craig Venter

Leading American biochemist, geneticist and entrepreneurial genius, Dr Craig Venter is the first person to sequence the human genome 15 years ago. His ongoing genomic research has uncovered breakthroughs in the ability to “reprogramme life” – using medicine and science to identify a person’s predisposition to disease. He is also actively involved in longevity science –using human genomics, informatics, next generation DNA sequencing technologies, and stem cell advances to change the face of ageing.
