The mission of the Life Extension Society (LES) is to support research and public education in human life extension. LES published the Life Extension Society News and sponsors speakers and seminars on life extension topics such as nutrition and nutritional supplementation, anti-aging medicine, cryobiology, and nanotechnology.
LES is a membership organization, with most members being from the mid-Atlantic region. LES membership dues currently are $20.00 per calendar year. New members are always are welcome.
The next Life Extension Society meeting will be held at 1:00 pm on Sunday, November 5, 2006, at Mark Mugler's home at 48 Adams St. NW., Washington, DC. The house is half a block from North Capitol. The two nearest major cross streets are Rhode Island and Michigan. The nearest Metro stations are Shaw/Howard on the Green Line, and Rhode Island Avenue on the Red Line. The phone number is 202-483-1760.
Meetings are open to everyone with an interest in life extension.
LES supports cryonics as "life extension of last resort." Cryonic suspension is an experimental procedure whereby patients who no longer can be kept alive with today's medical abilities are preserved at low temperature for treatment in the future. Researchers in biology, medicine, and nanotechnology are striving to improve the science of low-temperature preservation and restoration. A number of LES members also are members of cryonics organizations.
The first two phases of cryogenic preservation occur at the site of a donor's deanimation and together are called cryonic stabilization. LES is acquiring cryonic stabilization equipment and supplies and providing them to cryonics organizations for stabilizations in the mid-Atlantic region.
