Who wants to live forever? The aging debate

IAS News 6 July 2012 | 1 Comment

Last night there was a half hour documentary on British television (ITV’s Tonight programme no less), briefly featuring Dr Aubrey De Grey the famous Cambridge Don and Founder of the SENs foundation, about the search for the aging gene. For a mainstream effort it was relatively good, and seemed to grasp the point (completely missed by Professor Blakemore in the recent aging debate hosted by the Oxford University Scientific Society which can be watched here), that it’s not just about living a long life, it’s about extending the functional or optimal health of an individual. I think even the most hardened sceptic wouldn’t mind living to 150 if they still felt and functioned like a 30 year old!

Check out the programmes page for further information and to watch Dr De Greys interview here.
