Aging is merely a disease -- and a curable one at that, argues Dr. Aubrey de Grey. His comprehensive plan for rejuvenation therapy breaks aging down into seven major classes and identifies detailed approaches to addressing each one. In this talk, Dr. de Grey will explain why therapies that can add 30 healthy years to the remaining lifespan of typical 60-year-olds may well arrive within the next few decades. Dr. Aubrey de Grey is the Chief Science Officer of SENS Foundation, a biomedical research charity, based in the US and UK, that aims to develop, promote, and ensure widespread access to rejuvenation biotechnologies that address the diseases and disabilities of ageing.
