Why do we die? How can we live healthier and longer? Are greatly increased life spans possible or even desirable? These are all questions Patrick Wilson from the National Institute of Health and Care Research (NIHR) considers through his research on the science of longevity.
Drawing on the latest research and advances in medicine, cybernetics and artificial intelligence, philosophy and sci-fi, he'll share his practical guide for humans hoping to survive the 21st century.
Prepare for a journey through the history of life and death, interviews with scientists and ageing experts and a look ahead to the future of humanity. Will we achieve immortality or destroy ourselves?
Please note this event includes discussion of death.
