Dr. Aubrey de Grey has worked for the last two decades to find a cure against aging. He thinks he is halfway there. He said that in another twenty years the technology would finally take us there, and people will get to live 1000 years. The first man to live that much might already be born.
“Oh, a huge amount of progress has been made – absolutely immense,” said dr. De Grey. As unbelievable as it might sound, it looks like there is enormous progress in his work, and some molecular therapies got out of the laboratory and are on the way to the clinical trials. Dr. Aubrey de Grey is a biomedical gerontologist, is the chief science officer at the SENS Research Foundation. The foundation conducts counter-aging research since it was founded in 2009.
The only thing that stands in the way of his revolutionary research is funding. Dr. de Grey is blaming the governmental succession for its perpetual lack of interest in directing funds to SENS. He stated that the investigation is dramatically slowed down because of insufficient funds. Because the trial is only in its early stage, commercial investment is unlikely to be attracted.
Defeating aging could help humans live 1,000 years
The research doesn’t work on a magic pill, but on several different therapies that would eventually repair the damage caused by aging. SENS redefines the way the world researches and treats age-related ill health, and hopes to inspire the next generation of biomedical scientists.
The strategy is to prevent and reverse age-related ill-health by applying the principles of regenerative medicine to repair the damage of aging at the level where it occurs. They are developing regenerative therapies that remove, repair, replace, or render harmless the cellular and molecular damage that has accumulated in our tissues with time.
These rejuvenation biotechnologies will hopefully restore the normal functioning of the body’s cells and essential biomolecules, returning aging tissues to health and bringing back the body’s youthful vigor.
