For those in or near Florida: It was recently announced that Methuselah Foundation (site|blog) Chair and Chief Science Officer Aubrey deGrey will be in Orlando on May 12th. You can see details (and reserve seating) at degreyorlando.com. I plan to be there, but don’t let that dissuade you. Come anyway.
For those who can’t attend: While I have my own set of questions to ask him on subjects mentioned in his book Ending Aging, I’m interested in knowing what you would like to ask him. I’ll take a list of these questions and ask… as many as I can, which may well be zero. If allowed, I’ll even record it and post it on this blog. (Probably won’t be allowed, copyright reasons and all, but I’ll try it anyway.) Posts your questions in the comments sections. I’ll update this post in a couple of weeks with questions I plan to take (if anyone asks any questions). By the way, if you’re a real hard-core anti-aging researcher (and someone with considerably more brains that lil’ ol’ me), you may want to check out his first book, Mitochondrial Free Radical Theory of Aging.
For those of you who don’t know who he is and are wondering why I’m so excited or why you should care: Click on these links and read: SENS, Methuselah Mouse Prize, Rejuvenation Research. Also, watch this (Flash) video from his appearance at the TED conference:
Finally, for those of you interested in these topics, here are a few links you’ll want to check out: Think Artificial, Fight Aging, Ouroboros, Aging Research, BetterHumans, Immortality Institute. You can also get a good number of TED videos on these subjects at the ImmInst forums. This is just a sampling from my RSS reader. If you have any links you’d like to add relating to anti-aging and related research, feel free to do so in the comments (within reason).
