I'm the Co-Founder and CEO of Androcyte LLC, a biotechnology and bioinformatics company aimed at discovering effective treatments for aging and age-related diseases. Currently engaged in the study of molecular and hematological profiles associated with a longer period of health at the end of life, and an analysis of factors that confer longevity and protection from neurodegeneration, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes. Also engaged in stem cell, epigenomic, and genetic therapy research.
Eradicating the disease of Aging! After that, we'll have time to fix the rest of humanity's problems.
We have the ability to discover and control the processes involved in aging, and to be able to reverse this disease within a 25 to 30 year period. This requires an effort which is smaller than the foreign aid given to Afghanistan to fight the Communists! With a mere $2 - 4 Billion budget, we could conquer death by aging, and allow individuals to maintain their health and vitality for as long as they wanted.
If you think of each person as a storehouse of knowledge and experience, right now we have the equivalent of the burning down of 100,000 libraries a day! Imagine the social implications of saving these lives and allowing them to contribute to society rather than becoming a burden on society and eventually being lost to us.
