Aging — Is It Optional? Aubrey de Grey at TEDxOrlando




This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Biomedical Gerontologist Aubrey de Grey believes we can, and should, find medical interventions to repair the effects of aging. In this talk, he explains his research program and shares some recent discoveries.



Aubrey de Grey is the Chief Science Officer of SENS Research Foundation, a California-based 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to combating the aging process. His research interests encompass the characterization of all the accumulating, and eventually pathogenic, molecular and cellular side-effects of metabolism (“damage”) that constitute mammalian aging — and the design of interventions to repair and/or obviate that damage. His plan for such repair, termed Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence (SENS), breaks aging down into seven major classes of damage and identifies detailed approaches to addressing each one. He is a Fellow of both the Gerontological Society of America and the American Aging Association, and sits on the editorial and scientific advisory boards of numerous journals and organizations
