Summary In most human societies, females live longer than males. Some people live in good health to great ages while others die relatively young. The tendency to live longer seems to run in families. Parenthood also seems to influence survival. Why should females survive well after they lose fertility? In the current context of improved diet, public health and medicine, many more people will live longer, leading to an ageing of the human population. An international group of experts, hosted by the Fondation IPSEN, met during the third meeting of the series "Colloques Mā„¤ecine et Recherche", devoted to "Research and Perspectives in Longevity", to discuss the latest advances towards understanding why some of us age faster than others.
