HEALTH EXPERT Reveals The Secret To AGING IN REVERSE | David Sinclair

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

I’m confused. At 34:20 he says he says people in clinical trials had there age reversed 2 years (I assume he is talking about thymus rejuvenation) and it is additive so people who had it 4 times went back 8 years. Ok. AND?! I mean am I missing something here? Is this not what we are after? I’m 50 now, so if I did it 13 times will I be 24 again?

My guest today is a revolutionary thinker and ground-breaking scientist who’s on a mission to make you younger. He’s Australian biologist and Harvard professor David Sinclair, author of Lifespan: Why We Age – And Why We Don’t Have To. David is one of the world’s leading scientific authorities on longevity, ageing and how to slow its effects.

Aided by stem cells, a lizard regenerates a perfect tail for the first time in 250 million years

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Lizards can regrow severed tails, making them the closest relative to humans that can regenerate a lost appendage. But in lieu of the original tail that includes a spinal column and nerves, the replacement structure is an imperfect cartilage tube. Now, for the first time, a USC-led study in Nature Communications describes how stem cells can help lizards regenerate better tails.

“This is one of the only cases where the regeneration of an appendage has been significantly improved through stem cell-based therapy in any reptile, bird or mammal, and it informs efforts to improve wound healing in humans,” said the study’s corresponding author Thomas Lozito, an assistant professor of orthopaedic surgery and stem cell biology and regenerative medicine at the Keck School of Medicine of USC.

Harvard University professor geneticist Dr. George Church stops by the Institute

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, existential risks, genetics, life extension

Talking about RejuvenateBio starts at 20:30. Mentions there are 300 known genes concerning human aging and 45 of those have been tested in mice with what sounds like success.

Wow! Where do I start. I woke up and seen Dr. George Church on Bloomberg news. They was discussing a new biotech startup company called Rejuvenate Bio. A life extension company that seeks to reverse aging in dogs. Then apply that knowledge to humans. I ask Dr. Church about what he thinks is the cause of aging. t. Dr. Church thinks its a genetic reason why we age. Dr. Church is a cofounder of a company called Colossal is a company that wants to create a hybrid between the east asian elephant and the woolly mammoth. The purpose of doing this is to fight climate change and prevent the extinction of the east asian elephant.

IQ2 Debate: Don’t Trust The Promise Of Artificial Intelligence

Posted by in categories: existential risks, life extension, robotics/AI

As technology rapidly progresses, some proponents of artificial intelligence believe that it will help solve complex social challenges and offer immortality via virtual humans.

But AI’s critics are sounding the alarm, going so far as to call its development an “existential threat” to mankind. Is this the stuff of science fiction? Could the “Terminator” become reality, or will these fears prevent the next technological revolution?

Growing Young

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

He says here that we will not live to 150 without merging with technology. Since rejuvenation already exists for worms, mice, and rats I see no reason why a person could not make it that long and longer.

In this video Sergey talks about his ideas for when we will reach Longevity Escape Velocity, his vision for the longer term and the implications for society as people live longer.
