Fountain of Youth

Last October, a large group of scientists made their way to Yuri Milner’s super-mansion in the Los Altos Hills above Palo Alto. They were tested for covid-19 and wore masks as they assembled in a theater on the property for a two-day scientific conference. Others joined by teleconference. The topic: how biotechnology might be used to make people younger.
...
Altos is pursuing biological reprogramming technology, a way to rejuvenate cells in the lab that some scientists think could be extended to revitalize entire animal bodies, ultimately prolonging human life.
...
The major question now is how to tailor reprogramming to see if it can safely rejuvenate animals without killing them...
Sure. I remember when injections of goat gland extracts was the big deal in eternal youth.
