How long can we live, and how long do we want to live? Why do we change as we get old, and is there anything we can do to stop it? In this science video the panel discuss ageing and some of the recent remarkable scientific advances that suggest ageing may no longer be a fact of a life.
Chaired by Prof. Colin Blakemore, the panel consists of Tom Kirkwood, (Professor of Gerantology at University of Newcastle), Martin Edwards (CEO of Reen-Neuron biotech company), Anthia Tinker (Professor of Social Gerantology at Kings College London) and environmental scientist and professor of mathematics at University College London.
