Kate Marie is the driving force behind the 'Slow Ageing' collaboration. She started her working journey as a registered nurse 30 years ago. Drawing on her frustrations with the generic 'anti-ageing' industry, her work aims to provide transformational health information which gives all men and women the realistic means to control their own ageing and love getting old. Professor Merlin Thomas is a clinician scientist. His research focuses on the role of diabetes, glycation and oxidative stress in accelerating the changes of ageing, and finding a practical means for their control. Professor Thomas has published over 150 articles in many of the world's leading medical journals and is the author of Understanding Type 2 Diabetes (Exisle Publishing, 2013).
