Human Longevity Inc. and Calico: healthy lifespan extension is a win-win game and a competition against time

A snippet from the following interview: The Regeneration Generation: A Conversation With Bob Hariri, Vice-Chairman and Co-Founder of Human Longevity Inc.

Longevity is a red-hot field in medicine, and many companies are jumping into the mix. How do you feel about Google’s Calico venture? Are they competition for you?

We are thrilled and excited that a remarkable company like Google has invested so actively in biomedicine and see Calico as part of what will be a rapidly expanding enterprise of age management or wellness. I hope there are many more companies who participate in helping people live longer, healthier lives.

Indeed.

Let me add an argument here on why the ‘game’ for healthy lifespan extension is non-zero-sum, win-win: Consider this: it is unlikely that one private company will come up with an overall technological solution for robust healthy lifespan extension including all tissues, organs and organ systems of the human body. So companies will need to offer services complement to each other and must build biomedical interventions dependent on the successful execution of the interventions offered by other companies.
