The extension of life, the prolonging of youth, and the sustaining of health are among the oldest of human dreams, expressed in myths and stories of potions, elixirs, and fountains of youth.
We are now entering an era of unparalleled exponential growth of technology in every area that will soon create a world that we, at the beginning of the 21st century, will hardly recognize. Advances in science, medicine, nutrition, and public health over the past century have extended our expected life spans by decades, but that is only the beginning. The new frontiers opened up by DNA research may soon make it possible to slow and perhaps stop aging all together.
Located in the Stasis Biotechnology Research Park and created by architect Stephen Valentine, the Timeship Building's six-acre structure will be a center for pioneering life extension research and cryopreservation, as well as the world's most secure and technologically advanced facility for the storage of cryopreserved biological materials, including organs for transplant, DNA, and people traveling to a future where they can be reanimated to live healthy lives free from aging.
