Aubrey de Grey will give a talk at TransVision 2010 on SENS and SENS Foundation: recent progress.
Abstract: It is now ten years since the first workshop was held to discuss the counterintuitive possibility that reversing aging – comprehensive, bona fide rejuvenation of the human body – might be a more achievable medical goal than merely slowing aging down. This approach, which essentially amounts to the application of regenerative medicine to aging, has now gained widespread respect within the relevant expert scientific communities, and experimental work to make it a reality is proceeding at an ever-accelerating pace. SENS Foundation is spearheading this effort, with an emphasis on the most challenging components of it (which are the ones in most danger of being neglected by other funding sources). In my talk, I will report on our recent progress in this work.
|Aubrey de Grey is a biomedical gerontologist, and the Chief Science Officer of the SENS Foundation. The central goal of Aubrey de Grey’s work is the expedition of developing a true cure for human aging.|
