CNN devotes an article to the Mprize for anti-aging research today. To quote Steven Spindler, the current Mprize record holder, "we need to convince policy makers that finding the causes of aging is a reasonable thing to do. Some people still consider extending life span as quackery, but like every other field of medicine, the more we know the more we are able to reverse things and extend life span, not just the bad years - but by slowing down the aging process." The Mprize is funded by people like you and I who want to see more and faster progress towards significant healthy life extension therapies - it is a popular prize in the best sense of the term.
