What does real anti-aging science look like? What are the plausible aims and areas of research? How much do we know about the aging process, what can we reasonably extrapolate from this, and what is the best way forward to find a cure for aging? If you have not yet read the material provided by biogerontologist Aubrey de Grey at the Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence (SENS) website, then now is the time to do so. Aimed at a wide audience, the site explains why a cure for aging is plausible and how - with sufficient funding - we could attain it within a few decades. You should certainly also take some time to read about Joao Pedro de Magalhaes' work on aging and genetics at senescence.info.
