Former researcher in biogerontology at UCLA, Inserm and the Pasteur Institute, where he contributed to lifespan tests in C. elegans and mice and organised clinical trials, Edouard is today one of the directors of the International Longevity Alliance (ILA). Since 2001 he has asserted human healthspan can be rapidly extended once large scale rodent lifespan tests, massive health data analysis and agile human trials are collectively set up. Since 2012 he is gradually but firmly building that pipeline with the help of the ILA.

In the 41st episode of Adam Alonzi's Podcast Ben Thomas and I discuss classic Weird Tales from authors such as H.P Lovecraft, Algernon Blackwood, Arthur Machen, and Lord Dunsany. We also examine similar techniques and themes found in the works of Joseph Conrad, Herman Melville, and Henry James. Being the first part in what will likely be an ongoing series, we give our listeners a few precious morsels of neuroscience in preparation for future treks into the heart of darkness.
Ben is an author, journalist, inventor and independent researcher who studies consciousness and the brain. A lifelong lover of all things mysterious and unexplained, he weaves tales from the frontiers of science into videos, podcasts and unique multimedia events. Lots more of his work is available at http://the-connectome.com.
