Extending health span, Futures in Biotech

Via Glenn Reynolds, here’s a useful interview of two leading researchers in human aging:

Participants: Lenny GUARENTE, PH.D.: Novartis professor of biology at M.I.T. and author of “Ageless Quest: One Scientist’s Search for Genes That Prolong Youth.”; Robert N. BUTLER, M.D.: Founding director of the National Institute on Aging, a founder of the Alzheimer’s Disease Association and winner of a Pulitzer Prize in 1976 for “Why Survive? Being Old in America.” He heads the International Longevity Center.; SARA DAVIDSON: Author, most recently, of “Leap! What Will We Do With the Rest of Our Lives?”

For a much more in depth discussion with Dr. Guarente, I recommend Futures in Biotech 2: Dr. Leonard P. Guarente on Aging.

If you would like to hear top scientists in molecular biology explain their latest research, Futures in Biotech is a remarkable resource.
