In the recent Reddit Ask-Me-Anything session Bill Gates was asked what was left in his bucket list and he answered “Don’t die…”
This is huge. However, Mr. Gates sounded like he has no idea what to do in particular to achieve that. Immortality won’t happen on its own. In order to become immortal one has to slow down aging first. This can be done by funding research aimed at deciphering the mechanisms of aging and creating interventions to postpone, stop and reverse the detrimental processes of aging. Mr. Gates is one of those few people in the world who can actually secure significant progress in extending human longevity and reaching immortality.
If Mr. Gates supports the following scientists, he has a chance on becoming immortal. Here is the list of researchers, whose work is credible and productive: Nir Barzilai, Andrzej Bartke, Mikhail Blagosklonny, Maria Blasco, Judy Campisi, Claudio Franceschi, David Gems, Brian Kennedy, Cynthia Kenyon, Brian Kraemer, Valter Longo, Gordon Lithgow, Victoria Lunyak, Richard Miller, Richard Morimoto, Alexey Moskalev, Thomas Perls, Robert Shmookler Reis, Steven Spindler, Yousin Suh, Jan Vijg.
So, Mr. Gates, where is your money?
