Functional Longevity, Joon Yun @ TEDxSanFrancisco

Longevity is a fact, we’re all living longer but how do we make sure our long lives are healthy and rewarding? Joon Yun exposes how we are not solving the problems of aging and how we should build on our resilience and stretch our biological features. Dr. Joon Yun is managing partner and president of Palo Alto Investors, LLC, an investment management firm founded in 1989 with $2 billion in assets invested in healthcare. Board certified in radiology, Joon served on the clinical faculty at Stanford from 2000-2006. Joon has served on several corporate and non-profit boards and has published dozens of patents, scientific articles, and business essays.

Joon and his wife Kimberly launched the $1 million Palo Alto Longevity Prize in 2013 to reverse the aging process and recently donated $2 million to launch the National Academy of Medicine Aging and Longevity Grand Challenge. Joon is a member of the President’s Circle of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
