Dr. Aubrey de Grey is a biomedical gerontologist based in Mountain View, California, USA, and is the Chief Science Officer of SENS Research Foundation, a California-based 501(c)(3) biomedical research charity that performs and funds laboratory research dedicated to combating the aging process. In addition, he is Editor-in-Chief of Rejuvenation Research, the world’s highest-impact peer-reviewed journal focused on intervention in aging. He received his BA in computer science and Ph.D. in biology from the University of Cambridge. His research interests encompass the characterisation of all the types of self-inflicted cellular and molecular damage that constitute mammalian aging and the design of interventions to repair and/or obviate that damage. Dr. de Grey is a Fellow of both the Gerontological Society of America and the American Aging Association, and sits (uncompensated) on the editorial and scientific advisory boards of numerous journals and organisations. He is a highly sought-after speaker who gives 40-50 invited talks per year at scientific conferences, universities, companies in areas ranging from pharma to life insurance, and to the public. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWRa6kVKv8o https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aubrey_de_Grey
Famed longevity pioneer Aubrey de Grey, Chief Science Officer of SENS Research Foundation, joins Geoffrey Woo, Founder and Chairman of Health Via Modern Nutrition Inc., for an enlightening conversation about advances in longevity, the investments and technologies that extend life, and the challenges and opportunities of a world in which people live longer. He walks us through his damage repair therapies with a focus on rejuvenation, prevention, and wearable technologies. Filmed on May 17, 2021. Key Learnings: Longevity escape velocity, which is a term de Grey coined, is the idea in which life expectancy is extended longer than the time that is passing, and he estimates a 50% chance that aging could be brought under medical control in as little as 15 years' time.
