Science is on the cusp of a revolutionary breakthrough. We now understand more about ageing – and how to prevent and reverse it – than ever before.

In The Telomerase Revolution, Dr Michael Fossel, who has been at the cutting edge of ageing research for decades, describes how telomerase will soon be used as a powerful therapeutic tool, with the potential to intervene in age-related disease, dramatically extend life spans and even reverse human ageing. Telomerase-based treatments are already on offer, and have shown early promise, but much more potent treatments will become available over the next decade.

This is the definitive work on the latest science of human ageing, covering both the theory and the clinical implications, taking readers to the forefront of one of the most remarkable advances in human medicine.


The Telomerase Revolution is a remarkable book, telling a fascinating story that pulls together at last a single coherent theory of how and why growing old leads to so many different forms of illness.
Matt Ridley, author of Genome and The Rational Optimist

Dr Fossel's exciting book is opening doors to extended healthspan that can change human history, and it's all grounded in solid scientific research.
Noel Patton, founder and chairman of TA Sciences

Michael Fossel's compelling argument for the telomere approach to reversing aging isn't just worth a look - it's like reading the words of Virgil as he leads us along the mysteries of aging.
