Later, Prof. Ciechanover introduced the latest achievements in his scientific research field and customized medical treatment targeting different body features. Taking the film of "Forever Young" as a primer, he asked the ultimate question for all human being: people are in hot pursuit of longevity, yet how long exactly can we live? He pointed out that the development of biotechnology and medical treatment had promoted the exploration in customized medicines. The application of innovative diagnosis and treatments would be the hope of human health in the future. "Agilina Jolie's genetic tests showed that she had a very high risk of breast cancer, so she chose to remove her breast. Identifying genetic defects and taking preventive measures is equivalent to pre-customized treatment," said Prof. Ciechanover.
