about

The decline of infections, starvation, warfare, heart attack and stroke has allowed people to reach extreme old age but ushered in disability, dementia and degenerative disease, with profound consequences for the self and society. Dr Guy Brown explores these vital issues at various levels, from the cell, to the whole body, to society.
Dr Guy Brown heads a research group at the University of Cambridge, UK working on cell death in the brain, the heart and in cancer. His previous book The Energy of Life (Harper-Collins/Simon& Schuster) won the Wellcome Trust Prize for popular science.
