Dr. Aubrey de Grey Accelerates His Estimates

Posted by in category: life extension

Today we have some clips and commentary from the SENS Webinar we did back in January where we asked Dr. Aubrey de Grey about his prediction for robust mouse and human rejuvenation and got a positive answer!


On January 28, 2019, we held a webinar with the SENS Research Foundation as part of a new ongoing series of research webinars. During the webinar, we asked Dr. Aubrey de Grey how close we might be to achieving robust mouse rejuvenation (RMR) and robust human rejuvenation, and his answer was somewhat surprising.

RMR is defined as reproducibly trebling the remaining lifespan of naturally long-lived (~3 years average lifespan) mice with therapies begun when they are already two years old.

Dr. de Grey now suggests that there is a 50/50 chance of achieving robust mouse rejuvenation within 3 years from now; recent interviews and conversation reveal that he’d adjusted this figure down from 5–6 years. He has also moved his estimation of this to arrive from around 20 years to 18 years for humans.
