What is life extension?

Life extension is the study of slowing down or reversing the processes of aging to extend both the maximum and average lifespan.

Life extension is an amalgam of different technologies and techniques falling into two principal categories:

  • rejuvenation – making reversing signs of aging
  • extension – making life last longer


What else do we call it?

Anti-aging medicine, indefinite life extension, experimental gerontology,  biomedical gerontology
