Closing in on the Cure for Death

Time is on your side if you're under 30, suggests biogerontologist Aubrey de Grey in an optimistic discussion of life extension.

A long and insightful interview with the host of our September meeting (see below, message of the 17/08/03) is available here courtesy of the BetterHumans site.

The topics discussed: Life extension is coming soon; Should we extend our lifespan?; Pursuing the end of aging; Achieving the "impossible"; Going against the grain; Seven-point plan; Scientific and technological challenges; Social and political obstacles; Antiaging prize; Prospect of immortality; Getting involved.

Any questions? Ask de Grey in person on the 6th of September, in Cambridge!
