Longevity Panel — The Scientists working on Reversing Aging | Part 1

Posted by in categories: biological, life extension

Long vid. Slight annotation in the comments. A few takaways I liked: We need to move to human data instead of mice. People’s attitude towards life extension should change drastically soon. There is human data among this group and have released it, will keep following it, and some to be released soon. Sinclair thinks he can start primate trials this year. And overall everyone is optimistic.

A couple of weeks ago Avi Roy, alongside Nathan Cheng & Laura Minquini, hosted the Longevity Panel discussion, which assembled some of the biggest scientists in the field currently working on reversing aging.

This discussion was intended to illuminate how they are approaching longevity and to know if we are any closer in achieving it.

The talk was split into two sections: the first being open discussion guided by questions from the hosts. The talk was then opened up to the floor, allowing audience questions. Part 1 will provide the transcript from the first section of the Longevity Panel. Enjoy!

The questions:
05:35 — How do you plan on reversing aging?

14:52 — If we want to reverse aging or slow it, what are the most promising approaches to measuring biological aging and the effectiveness of the therapeutic interventions that we’re developing?

28:28 — In 1969, gerontologist Alex Comfort suggested that life expectancy, not simply maximum lifespan, could be extended to 120 years within the next 20 years. That didn’t happen because he obviously is not with us anymore. What will be different this time as we try to get people interested in longevity or promise them that this is imminent in some way or form?
