Thailand HealthSpan Study

IRIWP is pleased to invite Thai government health officials, corporate sponsors, university researchers, medical and philanthropic organizations, civic and religious groups, and interested individuals and families to join us in the our Thailand HealthSpan Study.

Thailand HealthSpan Study

Today’s modern technologies and advances in medicine make it possible to extend a person’s lifespan for years. But simply extending lifespan is not enough. Globally, unhealthy-aging populations live longer, but their rising health and habilitative services costs make it imperative to extend healthspan as we have lifespan.

As shown above “Healthspan” can be defined as the period of one’s life that one is healthy. A better definition might include being free from age-related serious disease. Human healthspan is associated with many factors. For example, the interplay of negative lifestyle and environmental factors can result in epigenetic changes accelerating age-related disease. However, epigenetic changes have potential for reversal with lifestyle modification, as seen below.

Our goal is to pursue longitudinal assessments of human aging associated with epigenetic changes, resulting in alterations of gene expression and disturbances in broad genome architecture and the epigenetic landscape. The potential reversibility of these epigenetic changes offers exciting opportunities to alter the trajectory of age-related diseases and promote mental and physical wellbeing.
