Just about to complete and write up Ph.D in biomedical science. My main area of research is aging and exercise biochemistry/metabolism. I am currently looking at the effects of resistance training and dietary supplementation on mitochondrial ATP production rate in aged males.

I would like to increase awareness about how we can maintain our youth and vigour for longer. For example, the classic decrease in muscle strength and endurance that we tend to see with age. This may not be the cause of "aging" per se but rather the result of a decrease in physical activity as we age.

I regards to immortality..... at the moment I am in general not overly concerned about immortality from a physical stand-point. I am however concerned about immortality from a pyschological stand-point. I believe that it is my role to find out as much as I can about how to maintain the quality of one's life whilst we are alive and hence minimise suffering that results from preventable situations.

Perrott
41/m

Education: I'm in the 20 year General Science program at the University of Alberta. Actually re-enrolled Fall /04 after a lengthy hiatus although I've been taking singe courses over the past few years. Majoring in Physical Sciences and minor in biology. Should graduate by the end of next year.
Interests: Mitochondria, bioinformatics, programming and databases, and as an old friend said.. I'm interested in everything... it's just good to know all there is to know
Near Term and Current Position: Working on a c elegans research project trying to create a mutator mitochondrial DNA Pol gamma. Thus far the PCR is 'difficult'. Another major aspect of my life is to promote the heck out of the Mprize as much as I can wherever I can.
What I plan to do: spend every last waking free moment honing myself into a better message that healthy life-extension is within reach.

M

University of Wisconsin, Madison. BA in Letters and Science (Philosophy)
Teacher's certificate in ESL from UNAM Centro Enseñaza de Lenguas Extranjeras
20 plus years as a pilot and in construction as well as an 8 year period working with aircraft.

Self taught, thus defining current and past interests in physics, basic engineering, piston and turbine engine operations/mechanics, political science, social sciences, anthropology, archeology, paleontology, linguistics, language learning, writing and computer hardware/software integration.

My near term goals are to complete projects that are already begun and return to higher ED for some additional degrees. I devote a lot of attention to developing online social webs for the support of this institute and intend to be able by next winter to begin better outreach activity when the parenting will be shared again. However that will also no doubt include many *honey do* projects that are also requisite.

Currently working as a 24/7 single parent of two teens, building, writing, a Director here at Imminist, and meme seeding fertile minds everywhere the internet reaches.

I am interested in doing more to not only ensure longer life but help secure that it will be a higher quality life for everyone including myself. I consider a major part of what I do to be assisting many of you because the odds are frankly against me. I commit to this process fully understanding (though keeping my hopes alive regardless) that I am not a likely recipient of the benefits we are collectively working toward but I am confident can help make them a reality regardless.

I work to keep us all honest (including myself) and well behaved here at Imminst and I try to contribute what I consider important news and personal opinion on a wide array of topics from bio and nanotech, singularity tech and environment to the war in Iraq. These include ethical analysis, observations and ideas.

I also work in the real world and need too. I have been honing my skills as an effective writer hoping to find the correct venue for me to focus these talents on.

It certainly would help if I am going to contribute more money to our collective goals as well :))

Arthur "Art"
Abougou
Born 8/30/1985
Male

Current education: Sophomore Pre-Science considering either Computer Science (BS) or Management Information Systems with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA)
(Current, University of Arizona)

Current interests: I'm mostly interested in interdisciplinary work between computer science, applied physics, chemistry, engineering and business solutions. If you have any information please PM me.

Current position: I'm a computer lab aid at the Pima Community College and I also do freelance tech support if I have the time. Plus, I'm the event coordinator of a non-profit youth organization know as "Break the Chain", we mostly do community service and fundraisers to help out the needy. But our organization is falling apart due to lack of commitment, even with all the effort I place on our members.

Near-term goals: Obtaining either a BS in Computer Science or a BSBA in Management Information Systems. I'm looking forword to starting a business in software development and applications if possible. If not, I'll continue my interdisciplinary studies.

Long-term goals: Start up or support several business involving the "new" industry (nano-manufacturing and self-modeling software). One long-term goal is to achieve my childhood dream of living and expanding through space and I will use my abilities to support that cause.

B. Science (Hons) majoring in Molecular Biology at University of NSW, Sydney.
B. Arts majoring in both Philosophy and History and Philosophy of Science at UNSW, Sydney.

I am currently trying to ge my life set up so that I can focus on research. That involves juggling full time job, part time business interests and part time staying up to date with research. I currently have one website (www.sportsarbitrageguide.com) which I am trying to build into a decent passive income source, plus I have a second website idea in mind which I will start working on as soon as I am comfortable leaving SAG to itself.

My goal is to build these websites and generate enough passive income for myself so that I can spend time studying biological ageing. Ultimately I think I would like to start a Biotech company which is dedicated to age related research. But that is a very long term goal.

Currently I work in an unrelated position for the government. I would be happy to remedy that though if anyone has any positions available in a lab somewhere.

I'm still completely lost as to what I think needs to be worked on first. I think this is the hardest part of the question of ageing...what is most important? Hence why I want to get myself free from financial concerns so that I can sit at home all day reading through journal articles. I want ot try to figure out where I want to research so as to create the biggest difference.

Current education: I recieved a B.S. in biology from the University of MA Amherst

Current Interets: My current interest is to live forever (apologies for the general answer, I am just too new to the game to really have a specific interest)

Near-term Goals: My near term goal is to read as much as I can in the areas of general molecular biology, the biology of aging, stem cell research and then further on any specific topics that intrigue me. I am hoping this will lead to me finding an area of research to pursue a graduate degree in, which will then lead into a nice long (or quick, if we're lucky) career of helping to find the cure for aging.

Current Position: My current position is a rock climbing intrustor at Carabiners Indoor Climbing in New Bedford MA (if done properly dangling high above the ground is actually much safer then many common day acts, such as driving to work (or at least i am guessing it is) anyhow well worth trying out at some point in your life)

Anything else: As I am just getting started with this path, I would appreciate immensely any advice people could give me in relation to: scientific texts dealing with the biology of aging and relevant topics, or any area of aging research that is in need of young motivated scientists. I was planning on approaching this from the what needs to be done first or what needs people the most perspective, as I am really pretty much interest in all areas I read about on the SENS website. So, once again any advice you got would be great, just PM me. Thanks a lot.
