The Inspiration Behind Juvify
Pankaj Kapahi, Professor at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, founded Juvify with the vision to promote lifestyle interventions like fasting to improve healthspan. Dr. Kapahi is a world-renowned expert in the field of fasting and its protective effects for slowing aging and age-related diseases. Dr. Kapahi obtained his BSc and Ph.D. from the University of London and the University of Manchester respectively. He did his postdoctoral work at the California Institute of Technology before starting his own laboratory at the Buck Institute. His laboratory has made significant contributions in the areas of nutrient responses, aging, and metabolism. The Kapahi laboratory studies the role of advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs) in influencing obesity and promoting the risk of several age-related diseases, including diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
