Q&A on the media and the purpose of aging research

Posted Jul 03 2008 4:12pm


Dominick Burton, author of theexcellentblogAgeing Research, has been asking biogerontologists a question:

The main purpose of ageing research at present is NOT to make people young and immortal as is often publicised in the media, but instead to prevent/combat disease and disability, allowing everyone to live healthier lives for longer. Is this media representation of ageing research detrimental to the true focus of ageing research? If you disagree with the main purpose of ageing research outlined in the question please state why?

My long-winded answeris now posted on Dominick’s blog. You can read anti-aging activistAubrey de Grey’s answer, posted earlier in the week, there as well.
