About Kris Verburgh

He studies how new technologies will disrupt medicine, health(care) and our lifespans and he watches new trends and paradigm shifts in the medical field and the impact of the fourth industrial revolution on our bodies, brains, and health.

As a researcher at the Free University of Brussels, he studies how we age and how these insights can be used to improve health and lifespan and lead to better prevention and treatment of various aging-related diseases and obesity. He created a new scientific field, nutrigerontology, that studies how nutrition can accelerate or slow aging and influence the risk of aging diseases, like heart disease or dementia.

Verburgh wrote his first science book when he was 16 years old. At age 25, he had written 3 science books.

'Without a doubt, the lecture of Kris Verburgh was one of the best we have ever seen at our Rotary meetings. A lecture of such a brilliant speaker is perhaps a one in 20-year event and I think this was also the prevailing impression of the public.'
