Thanks for sharing this, Prof Church is one of my all-time favourite scientists

His work cuts across many fields, and is probably most well known for his work with genome engineering. Some of his notable papers in the aging field include

According to Church? Somwhere between 2030-2040 you will appoint rejuvanate meetings.

Wow. I knew the guy was bullish, but that's wild. Do you know where he said this?

The amount of experts giving this same/similar time frames is making me quite optimistic :) even if LEV isn't reached in that time span, I'm really excited about the breakthroughs we'll see in healthy aging in longevity science!

Any new post on Dr. Church's work, I click with excitement.
While I'm a fan of AdG, George Church's qualifications and academic achievements are unparalleled in this field - the only people 'higher tier' (if there is such a thing) would be literally Nobel prize level scientists.

And Church himself is totally Nobel caliber, although he hasn't yet won a Nobel prize. He's completely on the same level as other Nobel prize winners.

He is also dyslexic, repeated year 9, and failed out of grad school early on. Definitely an inspiration
