About Nicola Bagalà

Nicola is a bit of a jack of all trades—a holder of an M.Sc. in mathematics; an amateur programmer; a hobbyist at novel writing, piano and art; and, of course, a passionate life extensionist. After his interest in the science of undoing aging arose in 2011, he gradually shifted from quiet supporter to active advocate in 2015, first launching his advocacy blog Rejuvenaction before eventually joining LEAF. These years in the field sparked an interest in molecular biology, which he actively studies. Other subjects he loves to discuss to no end are cosmology, artificial intelligence, and many others—far too many for a currently normal lifespan, which is one of the reasons he’s into life extension.

If you’re an X10 fan, you’ve probably noticed that today, we didn’t publish a new episode even though, according to our schedule, we were supposed to; this was due to a last-minute change of plans. Don’t panic; X10 is here to stay. However, Giuliano and I came to the inevitable conclusion that just two people…

We recently had the opportunity to interview Sergey Young, a board member of XPRIZE and the creator of the $100m Longevity Vision Fund. When did you first become interested in healthy life extension, and why? My interest began with a routine visit to a doctor. Five years ago, at the age of 42, my blood…

Our story begins on a summer day in 2016, sort of, but we’d be better off starting with today: Lifespan.io is proud to announce the launch of LifeXtenShow, a new show on our YouTube channel that’s entirely focused on popularizing aging research and rejuvenation. The show, co-hosted by yours truly and our brand-new volunteer Giuliano…

If you work in social security, it’s possible that your nightmares are full of undying elderly people who keep knocking on your door for pensions that you have no way of paying out. Tossing and turning in your bed, you beg for mercy, explaining that there’s just too many old people who need pensions and…

We’d like to draw attention to an initiative whose objectives are close to our own: the German Party for Health Research (GPHR, Partei für Gesundheitsforschung in German). Founded in January 2015 by three biochemists and one actor, the GPHR is rather unique in that it is a single-issue party: its only concern is the creation…

At Undoing Aging 2019, we interviewed some of the best researchers who are involved in discovering therapies for the root causes of aging. Their research aims to ameliorate the damages of aging and may one day lead to a future without age-related diseases. We even had the chance to interview the well-known Dr. Aubrey de…

Last Wednesday, I landed in Berlin, Germany at around 12:30. About an hour later, I was briefly in Cafè Alex, right next to the tapering TV Tower, where I met some of my colleagues from LEAF—some of whom I had never seen in person before—as well as other volunteers and members of HEALES, our friend…

When you’re repeatedly subjected to an unpleasant or painful situation over which you seem to have no control, there comes a point past which you simply give up on the very idea that you could possibly escape your predicament. Once you learn that you’re helpless in the face of circumstances beyond your control, you could…

A cognitive bias is a systematic deviation from rational thought that can influence people’s reasoning without them even noticing. Several cognitive biases have been observed and studies over the past few decades, demonstrably influencing decision-making, self-perception, and preferences while affecting many human activities. Naturally, cognitive biases have a measurable effect on the field of life…
