Immortality Institute Film: Michael Rose Interview

Bruce Klein of the Immortality Institute has posted the latest in a series of previews for Exploring Life Extension, the film currently in production. This time it's an interview with Michael Rose, an evolutionary biologist known for his work on increasing the life span of fruit flies, amongst other things.

My major scientific focus over the last fifteen years has been experimental tests of evolutionary theories for the evolution of aging, fitness, life-histories, etc., on Drosophila melanogaster , although I collaborate with other investigators using different species. We have experimentally tested the general theory that aging evolves because of a decline in the force of selection with adult age.
