About Nicola Bagalà

Nicola Bagalà has been an enthusiastic supporter and advocate of rejuvenation science since 2011. Although his preferred approach to treating age-related diseases is Aubrey de Grey’s suggested SENS platform, he is very interested in any other potential approach as well. In 2015, he launched the blog Rejuvenaction to advocate for rejuvenation and to answer common concerns that generally come with the prospect of vastly extended healthy lifespans. Originally a mathematician graduated from Helsinki University, his scientific interests range from cosmology to AI, from drawing and writing to music, and he always complains he doesn’t have enough time to dedicate to all of them—which is one of the reasons he’s into life extension. He’s also a computer programmer and web developer. All the years spent learning about the science of rejuvenation have sparked his interest in biology, in which he’s planning to get a university degree.

For much of human history, living up to a ripe old age was seen as a gift from the gods, an aberration, or just the product of sheer luck. Given that up to the beginning of the twentieth century, many of us succumbed to disease at an early age, being extremely fortunate to live past…

Founded in 2003 by David Gobel and Dr. Aubrey de Grey, the Methuselah Foundation was one of the very first organisations to champion the idea that ageing wasn’t an inevitable fact of life, but rather a process amenable to medical intervention. The foundation, a non-profit organisation, has been pushing to reach its goal—making 90 the new…

The battle against aging is not going to be an easy one, and it will likely require the most refined tools modern science has to offer. Among them, artificial intelligence may be one of the most promising and is being extensively used by biogerontology researchers such as Dr. Alex Zhavoronkov. Helping to drive progress in…

Dr. João Pedro de Magalhães is one of the arguably few people who found their purpose in life at a very young age. When he was still in elementary school, dr. de Magalhães realised that he, like everyone else in the world, suffered from an incurable, progressive disease – aging. Consequently, he decided to become…

The concern that rejuvenation biotechnologies might cause social disparity and further widen the gap between rich and poor is one of the most commonly raised ones, probably second only to concerns of overpopulation. Like many others, this concern may appear valid at first, but it does not survive careful analysis. Anti-aging sticker shock The underlying…

New medical technologies need bold researchers to make the leap from the laboratory table to hospitals and clinics where they can improve or even save lives. Kelsey Moody, a 30-year-old scientist from Beekmantown, is one such researcher. Kelsey is especially interested in the treatment of age-related diseases but using a different approach. Currently researching age-related…

Located in Novato, California, not too far from Mount Burdell Preserve and Olompali State Historic Park, is one of the world’s leading research centres for ageing and age-related diseases—the Buck Institute for Research on Aging.  Opened in 1999 thanks to the substantial bequest of American philanthropist Beryl Hamilton Buck, the Buck Institute set to fulfill…

SENS Research Foundation (SRF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose focus is on developing and ensuring widespread access to rejuvenation biotechnologies meant to bring the pathologies of old age under comprehensive medical control.  SRF was co-founded in March 2009 by Michael Kope, Dr. Aubrey de Grey, Jeff Hall, Sarah Marr, and Kevin Perrott. The approach to treating…

When people consider the possibility that eliminating age-related diseases could increase our healthy lifespans beyond current norms, this sometimes raises concerns. One of these concerns is that this could lead to long-lived dictators – imagine if Stalin, Hitler or Genghis Khan had lived much longer or even did not succumb to the aging processes by…
