‘The Future of Aging’ makes the scientific case for biogerontology

The Future of Aging: Pathways to Human Life Extension has just been announced by Springer. The 40 authors make the scientific case that a biological “bailout” could be on the way, and that human aging can be different in the future than it is today. Based on the future therapeutic potential of biogerontology, their paradigm-breaking proposals include sirtuin-modulating pills, new concepts for attacking cardiovascular disease and cancer, mitochondrial rejuvenation, stem cell therapies and regeneration, tissue reconstruction, telomere maintenance, prevention of immunosenescence, extracellular rejuvenation, artificial DNA repair, and full deployment of nanotechnology. The chapters range from Chapter 1, Bridges to Life by Ray Kurzweil and Terry Grossman to Chapter 23, Comprehensive Nanorobotic Control of Human Morbidity and Aging by Robert A. Freitas, Jr. The Future of Aging: Pathways to Human Life Extension Fahy, G.M.; West, M.D.; Coles, L.S.; Harris, S.B. (Eds.) 2010, Approx. 500 p., Hardcover ISBN: 978-90-481-3998-9 Available: May 4, 2010 Approx. $209.00 (Source: )
