Beyond curing age-related diseases, there is a new class of interventions to address the mechanisms of aging itself: maintenance. Like regular dental cleanings on a cellular level, these treatments promise to effectively pause and even undo the natural damage we experience as side effects of being alive — and it’s happening much sooner than most people realize.
Thanks to Aubrey de Grey and the SENS Research Foundation’s work at Yale, Oxford, and around the world, basic research has exploded in the last ten years and has already led to spinoff companies. This has put future research addressing all the mechanisms of aging on a predictable timeline — meaning the first people to live well past 120 in peak health are very probably alive today.
It is essential to understand this next leap forward in human history that will define the next 20-30 years.
* What are the investment opportunities in this space?
* How can we ensure these therapies benefit everyone, rather than exacerbating the inequalities of the present?
* How can we accelerate basic research to benefit more people sooner?
* How can we keep ourselves alive long enough to benefit from these therapies?
