The leader of the Antiaging movement, Aubrey de Grey, has started a new antiaging foundation. The new foundation will be advancing combination antiaging damage repair therapies.
The new foundation will work with Ichor Life Sciences. Ichor spun out of Aubrey’s prior foundation. Ichor has macular regeneration work and has expanded to senenscent cells and acts as a CRO. A Contract Research Organization (CRO) is a company that provides clinical trial services for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device industries.
Ichor is private company.
Aubrey wants to press ahead to achieve his long standing goal of robust mouse rejuvenation.
Robust mouse rejuvenation as originally outlined means a full enough implementation of SENS (aging damage reversal) to be capable of doubling the remaining life expectancy of an elderly mouse, demonstrated and then replicated in rigorous laboratory studies.
I interviewed Aubrey de Grey recently where he discussed business and scientific highlights in the field of aging damage reversal.

The combination of Supplements, Stem cells (MSC’s), Senolytics, HBOT with Blood Plasma Dilution will make the difference of 30 years life extension, as Jasper has predicted.
Why is the Aubrey de Grey taking none of them?
Isn’t George Church’s team at Harvard already past mice trials, past dog trials, and moving into human trials? Thought I read that recently.
Cool, any links?
I’d be impressed to see a 5 year old mouse.
But I saw something this year, saying human trials were beginning, I thought? Something like: clinical trials for the therapy are currently underway, and results look promising.
His supposition is that diseases of old age are like us being in an environment with like ten different predators that are after us. Eliminate the threat of one and that just means one of the others will get you. Even if you foil nine of them, that might still be the case. For that reason, and because of the affordability of vaccines, once developed, he’s been working towards a vaccine-based antidote to aging.
Already been achieved via growth hormone knockout.
Heh, no. Just no.
When I go to the NBF main page it shows nothing because it is searching for some term written in Cyrillic letters. Have you been hacked by Russian trolls?
I get that too sometimes. Or it searches for a random search term. I usually go to the archive posts section to get it to load properly.
It looks like an ad farming script. Squeeze more profits from page views.
Yes I go to whatever the current month is to get the latest posts.
It’s just an irritation.
Finally! He’d better hurry up, he hasn’t got a lot of time himself…
He’s longer than he looks, ironically.
Typo. Younger not longer.
Or it’s not he’s.
He’s almost 60. Not young at all.
This means that in 20 years he’ll be not even 80. He still has hope.
I’m 60 and I’m not optimistic at all. I’ve been hearing about possible anti-aging medicines, that would be available in the next 5 years, at least for the last 3 decades. In my opinion we have a long, long way to go until something worthwhile comes along, and in no way am I going to benefit from it.
as you get towards 70, you need to consider cryonics
Those who take pills deeply desire a long life. Those who choose cryonics are really scared
That’s not for me.
I am convinced that things are really going to change around 2040. A lot of work has been done, and a lot more will be done in the next 20 years, with ever improving technology.
Other people on this blog are wildly more optimistic than me.
Too late for me. In 2040, if I’m still alive, I think I’ll be at the point of not caring anymore. I’m almost there now…
Don’t worry. Gandalf de Grey will come back as Gandalf de White
