TANC Inaugural Event: Prospects of Extending Healthy Life
Presented by Dr. Aubrey de Grey
12th February 2008
"A sell out performance! The auditorium was absolutely full, with everyone wanting to hear more about the provocative hypothesis that metabolic intervention known as 'Robust Human Rejuvenation', can add an addition of 30 years of healthy life to people who are already in middle age at the start of treatment. Furthermore that 'The first 1000-year-old is probably less than 20 years younger than the first 150-year-old'.
Dr Aubrey de Grey's logic and modelling was compelling, and accompanied by an engaging fluid presentation style. Many of us left feeling a little worried, particularly about the possible social and political consequences. Professor Steve Haberman's response led to a series of questions - ably chaired by David Freedman - which only stopped when we ran out of time. Discussion continued with popular post event drinks, with the view that longevity enhancing treatment would need to be available to all, being one view hotly discussed.
A great start for TANC - the biggest alumni special interest group meeting. A lot of momentum and enthusiasm was generated for future events for alumni and our wider community of friends. Thanks must go to all our TANC committee members, Professors Verrall and Haberman, Theresa Dzendrowskyj and Cass Alumni Relations."
