The Scientists Working to Reverse Aging

Wednesday, June 15th, 2021 @ 1PM (EST) On Clubhouse.

  • Aubrey de Grey: The chief scientist officer and co-founder of the SENS research foundation. Aubrey is a biomedical gerontologist, author of ‘Ending Aging‘ and one of the longest proponents to study the field of longevity.

  • David Sinclair: Is the Professor of genetics and co-director of the Paul F. Glenn centre for the biology of aging at Harvard medical school. David is also the author of Lifespan, and his research focuses on understanding and slowing the pace of aging through a variety of approaches.

  • Jean Hebert: Is an Associate Professor in the department of genetics at the Albert Einstein college of medicine, and author Replacing Aging. Jean spends his time devising methods of cell replacement for the adult neocortex, where its cells are lost due to damage or age-related to degeneration.

  • Liz Parrish: Is the founder and CEO of Bioviva sciences. Liz’s focus is the advancement of gene therapy for the purpose of extending healthy lifespan in humans.

  • David Gobel: Is the co-founder and CEO of the Methuselah foundation. David’s focus is establishing and supporting research, breakthrough technologies, and regenerative medicine.

  • Joao Pedro de Magalhaes: Is a microbiologist and Professor at the University of Liverpool. The goal of Joao’s work is to understand the genetic cellular and molecular mechanisms of aging across all organisms.

  • Alexandra Stolzing: Is the head of research at SENS research foundation, and a Professor at Loughborough University. Her research focuses around the amelioration of the hallmarks of aging.

  • Greg Fahy: Is the vice president and chief scientist officers of 21st century medicine, and the founder of Intervene Immune. Greg is also a cryobiologist, biogerontologist, and businessman based in California. His research focuses on organ cryopreservation by vitrification.

Context

1993

Cynthia Kenyon discovers a mutation in the daf-2 gene that doubles the lifespan of C. Elegans. Her work along with that of Thomas Johnson sparked intensive study into the molecular basis of aging.


2021

Over 100 + longevity biotech companies, 47+ clinical trials, dozens of venture capital firms, and 300+ academic labs converging to understand and treat the root cause of major disease: Aging.
