peerspectrum podcast- david sinclair

All right welcome back. Today we’re heading to the front-lines of research testing and challenging one of the most basic truths of the human experience…we all get older and we all eventually die. Today’s guest doesn’t buy this. In fact, he actually views aging as a diagnosable disease, a disease that can be managed today, and one day fully treated.

Now, before you start rolling your eyes, let’s meet today’ guest. David Sinclair is a professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School and co-director of the Paul Glenn Center Biological Mechanisms of Aging. He is widely considered one the world’s foremost experts on longevity research. A co-founder of the journal Aging and several biotech companies, he also holds 35 patents. A recipient of more than 25 awards and honors, including being knighted in the Order of Australia, and Time Magazine’s top 100 most influential people. Besides his peer-reviewed research, his work is featured in five books, two documentary movies, 60 Minutes, Morgan Freeman’s, “Through the Wormhole,” and other media.

David’s newest book, “Lifespan, Why We Age and Why We Don’t Have To,” is to quote the blurb on the cover, “an elegant and exciting book that deserves to be read broadly and deeply.” That comes from Siddhartha Mukherjee, the famous Columbia University oncologist, and winner of the Pulitzer prize. Not bad!

It was a rare treat to have David with us today. Our conversation is also a great reminder that these really are incredible and exciting times we’re living in. With that said, let’s get started.
