The Lost Lectures

An End to Ageing

Aubrey offers an accessible guide to his research, outlining a future in which age related illnesses are removed from the picture and bodies are repaired and restored with the consistency of a MOT. In his utopic vision, suffering will be reduced, people will be free to pursue dream careers and pensioners can become rock stars.


Speaker Aubrey De Grey

Aubrey’s research is as astonishing as it is ambitious. To those technically minded amoungst you, he is a theoretician in the field of gerontology. If like us, you have no idea what this means, Aubrey studies the metabolic behavior of cells in a bid to end aging. He is the Chief Science Officer at SENS, an organization that is using pioneering science to create a roadmap to end ageing. He works on the development of what he calls “Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence” (SENS), a collection of proposed techniques to rejuvenate the human body and stop aging. If successful, we could all have a longer, more youthful lives awaiting us. He’ll be explaining his research to a hopeful, youthful (eternally!?) audience on the night!
