Along those lines, a recent Tim Ferris podcast featured Dr. Matt Kaeberlein, who is director of the University of Washington Healthy Aging and Longevity Research Institute. The whole podcast goes into a lot of detail, and I don’t want to summarize too much and lose context, but to frame the issue of aging
Dr. Kaeberlein makes a point to differentiate lifespan and healthspan, the latter being the part of your life span when you can actively engage in life. For most people, increasing healthspan is more important than increasing lifespan.

Interestingly, some drugs are gender specific usually benefiting males.

Dr. Kaeberlein currently conducting a large scale study of rapamycin in pet dogs.
