Dr. Aubrey de Grey
Can we live to 1,000? It was outrageous when he said it at ideacity in 2008… and again in 2015. Now he’s back to update us on the incredible progress that has been made toward life extension.
Dr. Aubrey de Grey is a biomedical gerontologist and the Chief Science Officer of the SENS Foundation. He is best known for his work on developing a true cure for human aging. His research focuses on identifying and promoting technological approaches to the reversal – not merely the prevention – of various aspects of aging. Aubrey de Grey believes that the medical technology required to live to 1,000 will be developed within the next few decades.
His research focuses on the biotechnologies that can repair and replace damaged organs. Just as cars need regular rounds of oil changes and spark plug replacements to keep them running smoothly, people will need to go in to rejuvenation clinics to keep up with their regenerative treatments to continue postponing age-related disease.
