News: Aubrey de Grey speaking at next H+@Melbourne Conf 2012

Aubrey de Grey, Chief Science Officer of the SENS Foundation will be speaking at the next Humanity+ Summit @Melbourne (to be held on 4-6 May 2012).
De Grey’s research focuses on whether regenerative medicine can thwart the aging process. He works on the development of what he calls “Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence” (SENS), a tissue-repair strategy intended to rejuvenate the human body and allow an indefinite lifespan. To this end, he has identified seven types of molecular and cellular damage caused by essential metabolic processes. SENS is a proposed panel of therapies designed to repair this damage.

  1. I am interested in Aubrey de Grey’s work, however, it seems that whenever I read an interview of his, Mr de Grey always quotes that within 25 years the science to counteract again should be in place. This time span always seems to be the same – even if it was quoted several years ago.
