Replacing Aging, with Jean Hébert
Stem cell transplantation to replace damage caused by ageing - London Futurists online event
What are the most promising options for dealing with the biological damage that accumulates throughout our bodies as we age?
For example, are collections of drugs likely to prove effective at undoing that damage, without causing adverse side-effects?
Or should more attention be placed on the possibilities to replace parts of our body, using innovative tissue engineering and stem cell therapies?
The latter approach is favoured by Dr Jean Hébert, who will be sharing his views and describing his most recent research in this London Futurists webinar.
Dr Hébert is Professor, Department of Neuroscience, and Professor, Department of Genetics, at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. He is also the author of the recent book "Replacing Aging".
