Ronald Bailey On The Methuselah Mouse Prize

Ronald Bailey comments on the Methuselah Mouse Prize for anti-aging research over at Reason Online. "The aim of the Methuselah Mouse Prize is not just to tempt scientists to get involved with anti-aging research. It's also a public relations stunt aiming to capture the public's imagination. De Grey believes that the public will demand more research into finding effective anti-aging treatments once they are convinced that it's possible to significantly retard aging in a mammal." As regular readers know by now, I see the Methuselah Mouse Prize as one of the most important initiatives currently underway - if you donate today you'll still be in time to get free promotional Mouse gear!
