The director of the BGRF wrote a book on the recent advances in biomedical research with potential to expand human life and health span and the possible effects of these technologies on the economies of the developed countries. The book will be published on the 2nd of July, 2013 by Palgrave Macmillan. Dr. Zhavoronkov has pledged to donate the expected royalty proceeds to ageing research.Learn moreBUY IT!
«The Ageless Generation addresses the greatest socio-political/scientific challenge of our time. It is provocative, fast paced, and hard to put down. This book should stimulate a lot of thought and hopefully some constructive responses both scientific and in the health care system.
Charles Cantor, Chief Scientific Officer, Sequenom, Inc., and Professor Emeritus, Boston University
«Aging is getting interesting! Zhavoronkov provides a concise but thorough view of aging from changing global demographics to the latest research. Importantly, he outlines a point-by-point plan centered around aging research that if realized could solve the aging population problem, create major economic benefits and enhance dramatically the quality of life for elders. Everyone should take heed. The choices we make now will impact us all in the near future.
Brian Kennedy, Ph.D., President and CEO, Buck Institute for Research on Aging
«Alex Zhavoronkov claims that we do not have to age the way all other generations did. Or… possibly… at all? Controversial and assertive, he lays out the case for expanding research into what makes all human beings sink into twilight before a century of life. Shall we adjust social policies for an era of spry oldsters, or even semi-immortals? These matters will roil our arguments for the next five decades. The Ageless Generation presents one side with knowledge and verve.
David Brin, bestselling author of Kiln People, Foundation’s Triumph, and many others
«The research of Alex Zhavoronkov paints a picture of frightening reality: that our children might just live to 130. The financial and economic consequences of this cry out for more urgent attention from all sides of society. A huge physchological readjustment in our attitude towards retirement, as we know it, is required for us to start to cope with this new future.
Hugh Gallagher, Chairman, International Employee Benefits Association
«The devastating impact of population aging in the decades to come is becoming like the proverbial weather: everyone is talking about it but no one is doing anything about it. Zhavoronkov starkly sets out the nature and trajectory of this crisis – and then he elaborates what few others have yet described, and no one so expertly: the unique solution to it, namely the development of comprehensive rejuvenation medicine that will restore and maintain the health of the elderly so that they can continue to contribute wealth to society. This book has the potential to define medium-term economic and social policy for the entire industrialized world.
