The human race has always longed for the fountain of youth, and according to some, it may soon be within our reach. But is it really desirable to live forever? THE IMMORTALISTS focuses on this classic dilemma and presents some of the field's most prominent scientists. Bill Andrews is a molecular biologist and famed long-distance runner, while Aubrey de Grey is a bearded theoretical biologist who conducts his research with a beer in hand. Both are on a mission to change a world they see as "blind to the tragedy of old age."
