What progress is being made in the field of reversing aging - the grand humanitarian project to extend healthy lifespan?
In this London Futurists online video conference, a number of healthspan extension researchers and activists from around the world will be answering questions such as:
*) What do you know now, that wasn't known, or which was less clear, back in January 2017?
*) What progress has encouraged you? And what disappointments have there been?
*) Overall, what have we learned? And what should the field do differently in the future?
We'll be discussing developments in the understanding of:
*) The underlying science of aging
*) The most effective medical interventions to slow or reverse aging
*) The most effective forms of advocacy, to change public opinion regarding this field
*) The social and economic consequences of significantly extended healthspans.
