Is aging inevitable? Do we need immortality? How long can technological progress continue? 

Aubrey de Grey is a man who is convinced that the only thing that separates us from the final victory over aging is the lack of funding for this area. Dee Gray is the co-founder and Director of Science of the SENS Research Foundation, which is engaged in anti–aging research (SENS stands for "strategies for engineered negligible senescence" - "strategy for achieving insignificant aging by engineering methods".

In addition, he is the author of the popular science book "Ending Aging", which examines in detail the question of the complete victory over aging by means of medicine over the next few decades.

The lecture (October 30, Friday, 19:00, Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow, Ostozhenka str., 16) will focus on the achievements of modern gerontology, questioning the inevitability of aging, and innovative technologies that will allow humanity to make a radical breakthrough in achieving eternal youth. Is it possible and do we need immortality? How long can technological progress continue?
