L. Stephen Coles, M.D., Ph.D. Award
For Research and Science Innovation in Aging and Age Management Medicine
A brilliant scientist and passionate researcher, L. Stephen Coles, M.D., Ph.D. combined his innate curiosity with a deep fascination for scientific discovery in multiple disciplines. His pursuit of observational, statistical and genetic data on supercentenarians maintained the strictest scientific standards while pushing the boundaries of knowledge to understand the causes of aging, "why those who live longest do so," and possibly an understanding of eventual cause(s) of aging and possible interventions.
The Age Management Medicine Group (AMMG) will present this award periodically to a Physician, Healthcare Professional, Scientist, Researcher, Member of Academia, etc. who has displayed both passion and the highest ethics and scientific values in conducting research and innovation in the fields of aging and age management medicine.
