My guest is Dr. Aubrey de Grey, a leading
voice in the field and the Chief Science Officer of the SENS
Research Foundation which is doing pioneering work on significantly
extending healthy, active lifespans. Aubrey is a biomedical
gerontologist with a degree in Computer Science and a Ph.D. in
Biology. He is author of the book "Ending Aging" and
Editor-in-Chief of the scientific journal "Rejuvenation
Aubrey sees life extension as a side effect of his efforts to

could ultimately extend. We explore such concepts the "pro aging

repair" that can sustain a human body.
Weekly interview show with people at the forefront of transformational technologies, scientific research, and bold new thinking that enables humans to operate at higher levels — better able to achieve whatever each person values most in life.
This could be in fields as diverse as neuroscience, computer science, psychology, bio-tech, augmented reality, nutrition & fitness and so many more areas of pioneering work.
