Peter and Peter and Dan discuss a recent trip to Vatican City, where the XPRIZE Vision Circle & Innovation Board members met on the annual Adventure Trip to discuss longevity and regenerative medicine, piggybacking on the United to Cure conference hosted by the Pope.
In this episode:
- Peter discusses his opening remarks at the conference with fellow panelists George Church (one of the creators of gene-editing CRISPR technology), Martine Rothblatt (CEO of United Therapeutics, whose goal is to regenerate human organs), and Lou Reese and Mei Mei Hu (co-CEOs of United Neuroscience, focused on creating vaccines against Alzheimer's and Parkinson’s disease).
- Dan brings up three keys to longevity: 1) Friends who are progressing, not declining, 2) Enough resources and income to be independent, and 3) Having a purpose, so you look forward to a future that is much greater than the past.
- Peter and Dan discuss how morality has evolved over time, and how some ideas that were once considered immoral are now considered miracles.
