Genetically Modifying Humans to Reverse Aging – Today – EP15: Liz Parrish (BioViva)
In this fifteenth episode, Liz Parrish shares her quest for radical life extension and details her two completed gene therapies. Read the transcript She describes the regenerative medical tourism available today for increased lifespan and costs. She relates her company’s mission to create a human that regenerates faster than they degenerate. She details her upcoming gene therapies, including upgraded IQ. Topics we discussed in this episode Making controversial medical history Quest for radically increased longevity Upregulating telomerase, hTERT Downregulates myostatin, follistatin Interest in regenerative medicine technologies Desire to help billions of people Comany goal to create a human that regenerates faster than they degenerate PGC-1α BioViva’s DNA methylation kit Plan to look at multiple aging clocks Regenerative medical tourism Childhood ambition Space travel and gene therapy are intertwined Personal goals Morphological freedom Hope for the future Being of optimistic nature Gene therapy – dystopian or utopian? Gene therapy costs Societal health stratification Making humans more malleable like software What is gene therapy?
