Aubrey de Grey is coming to Town

Aubrey de Grey has seen much attention about his theories on robust rejuvenation.

 

Here is an article in the Age in 2005:

“With the right engineering and maintenance, humans can live until they are 1000, says Aubrey de Grey. John Elder investigates.

AUBREY DE GREY looks like a scrawny Ned Kelly, with his beer-catching beard and red-rimmed eyes, a thriving survivor of the long past. His name suggests someone born a long time ago. Maybe it’s a name that will come back in vogue hundreds of years hence?

Dr Aubrey de Grey — despite his love of ale and junk food — hopes to be there, walking around in that far-away future. De Grey says he knows what is required to cure ageing.”
