Biologists of aging and the agencies that support them are in active pursuit of interventions designed to compress, slow, or arrest the human aging process. The achievement of such interventions will have a profound impact on many social institutions, from individual families to the health care system. To ensure that everyone benefits equitably from that impact, anticipatory public dialogue and policy-making will be required.
