Ageing is not a biological inevitability. Scientists are studying every aspect of the body which could lead to treatments that could slow down, or even stop, the ageing process.
In this talk by Andrew Steele, discover how understanding the scientific implications of ageing could lead to the greatest revolution in the history of medicine. One that has the potential to transform the human condition.
Andrew Steele is a London-based scientist, writer and presenter.
After completing a PhD in Physics, he decided to make the unusual leap to biology as he saw understanding ageing as the greatest humanitarian mission of our time. A recent Research Fellow at the Francis Crick Institute in London, he has used computers to decode our DNA and unravel the secrets hidden in some of modern biology’s biggest data.
He has featured in or on the Guardian, Sky News, The One Show, and Discovery’s Impossible Engineering and Through the Wormhole, BBC Radio 4’s Inside Science and Newshour.
His latest book ‘AGELESS: The New Science of Getting Older Without Getting Old’ is available from Amazon at https://geni.us/t50pxZv.
This talk was recorded at the Royal Institution on 16 March 2022.
