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.
