Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence
Why Genuine Control of Aging May Be Foreseeable

Edited by Aubrey D.N.J. de Grey (University of Cambridge, Cambridge, England)

This volume focuses squarely on the fact that, as a result of a wide range 
of advances over recent years, increasingly many specialists in the biology 
of aging are revising their traditional view that mammalian aging will 
remain essentially immutable for many decades to come. This is exemplified 
by three carefully argued analyses of the current state of biomedical 
gerontology published recently by a variety of experts in fields spanning 
most major aspects of mammalian aging. We are therefore at an unprecedented 
turning point in the study of aging, in which the curiosity-driven, 
exploratory research that has justifiably monopolized the field until now 
can at last be legitimately accompanied by goal-directed, biotechnological 
efforts, rationally designed on the basis of solid scientific knowledge. 
The purpose of this volume is to consolidate that advance by making those 
at the forefront of each aspect of aging and its control more aware of each 
other's work and by drawing attention to the comprehensiveness, and 
therefore the potential efficacy, of foreseeable anti-aging biotechnology.
