010. The Scientist Who Believes He Can Make Us Immortal: Dr. Aubrey De Grey
Dr Aubrey de Grey doesn’t just believe that ageing, and the suffering that comes with it, can be slowed down - he believes it can be undone altogether.
What’s more, he thinks we are merely a few years away from making the scientific breakthroughs that will enable the medical field to put an end to death related to ageing - for good.
His independently funded non-profit, the SENS Foundation, is at the forefront of radical research that combines the problem solving approaches of technology with geriatric medicine.
In this conversation he talks to Rob about his refusal to age gracefully, the biases of modern science, and why he won’t waste his time thinking about whether or not God exists.
